I’m officially in Alaska for my first time ever. I flew from PDX to Anchorage, then from Anchorage onto Fairbanks. I arrived in Fairbanks around 1:00AM and it was so crazy to see the sun still shining bright! I felt like it was noon. I really don’t have much planned until my flight leaves on Wednesday evening. I’m going to check out the UAF campus, look into some housing options, eat, and aside from that just whatever comes about.
A life goal of mine has been to climb Denali (also known as Mount McKinley by some) so it was really awesome to see it on the flight from Anchorage to Fairbanks poking above the clouds. Denali is about 1.5-2 hours from Fairbanks and about 4 hours from Anchorage. If I was in Fairbanks, well then Denali would be That much closer to me!! Let the training begin!
