Then we drove up to the Chena Hot Springs Resort, about an hour outside of Fairbanks. We ate lunch there and enjoyed walking around. There were several old vehicles of various kinds, just rusting away… lots of log buildings with moose racks galore… and pen of reindeer sleeping under trees… another pen of chickens and goats hanging out together. Just random, interesting stuff.
We didn’t get into the hot springs, but we dipped our hands in to see if it really was “hot.” It was. It also smelled like sulphur. The middle picture is the “ice skating pond.” I decided my ice skates probably wouldn’t work on it in that condition.
It was a fun, relaxing day. Tomorrow we’ll be back to work at the Fairbanks IDEA convention.
