Linda & Mary Beth under Fairbanks archway of Moose and Caribou Antlers. What is the difference between horns and antlers! Antlers are shed each years while horns are kept for life.

Fairbanks, Alaska

Fairbanks is the jumping off point for bush Alaska, 95% of Alaska's land mass with only 25% of its people.

One of the joys of this trip was bringing my youngest child - 11 year old Diana and my second child, 22 year old Andrew.

Native cultures were well represented at the University of Fairbanks museum

Mary is next to a stuffed bear, but we saw 10 live grizzleys in Denali National Park.
