          Very re remote place in the winter. Hotel is a little rough but the staff we met made up for it. Very nice, frinedly people. The elements take a beating on the facility but they did have a great space heater in the room that helped keep it warm. Vist this place in the summer.

          Forrest spent the day with us sharing the old traditions that are still practiced today. Whales are still hunted with harpoons. When a whale is killed, the whole town participates in the preparations and ...

We ate at a new restaurant called Top of the world restaurant. It is not actually the top of the world, but I believe it is the highest city in USA. I have been roughly another 500 miles north of here when I went to Svalbard two years ...

Paul & I left for the airport soon after, it was raining, which was the first time I’d seen 'decent’ rain since McCarthy.

          Being an international airport Fairbanks was much bigger than Valdez & I definitely knew it was an airport, unlike Valdez. Accordingly there ...

          The most awaited destination on my list was definitely Barrow, AK. We did not really get any good information about how to get dressed, what to pack etc, but we had our jackets ...
