ANCHORAGE, ALASKA, NORTH TO FAIRBANKS, ALASKA.
Patti and I are planning to visit our cabin in Manley Hot Springs, Alaska, for a week or maybe even two weeks.
Our trip began under sunny skies as we left Anchorage at 3:45pm yesterday afternoon the 9th of September and headed North to Fairbanks.
Then the sunny skies began to get just a tad dark.
Then just look at what we ran into.
Then, along with the rain, we encountered a 35-minute road construction delay.
You have to realize that we are in Alaska. It is September. Autumn is ending. Winter is eagerly creeping into the far North.
Do you see some snow on the distant mountain tops?
All is well that ends well.
We arrived safe and sound (in spite of some serious rain and fog on the road) at our incredible and wonderful room here at the 7 Gables Inn in Fairbanks.
Just look at our luxurious room.
And? In a few hours, we will head out from Fairbanks to Manley Hot Springs.
Smiling at being-on-the-road again.
Cap and Patti
Post Script : As I sign off here it is approaching 3am in the morning of Thursday the 10th of September. Patti finally conked-out and went to bed. So? I won't have the benefit of Patti's proof-reading.
