On the Road Again: North to Alaska

I am spending two weeks in North Pole, Alaska, about 20 miles from Fairbanks. When we landed in Fairbanks yesterday, the sun was setting.

This morning it is sunny and -17 degrees Farenheit. (-26 C) I think I will stay inside and enjoy the beautiful view from my sister’s livingroom.

Christmas in Ice, North Pole, Alaska


The City of North Pole, Alaska, holds an ice carving competition. The entries are displayed in ice park. The 2015 theme: Christmas in Ice. The best time to arrive for a visit is just before the sun goes down (about 2:30 pm) so you can see the sculptures in daylight and in the dark.

North Pole Ice Park Entrance

North Pole Ice Park Entrance

My sister Ruth and niece Amelia. who live in North Pole, were with me in the park.

The ice park is adjacent to Santa Clause House, an institution in North Pole.

Everyone comes to have their picture with Santa, including many of the Japanese tourists who  flock to the Fairbanks area each winter to view the Northern Lights.
