Leaving Anchorage for our trip up to Fairbanks. Billy at Byron Glacier. Another picture of Billy at Byron Glacier. A nice picture of the run-off stream from Byron Glacier. This is one of the small fishing huts in Circle, AK.  

  Another shot of the fishing huts in Circle, AK at the end of the Steese Highway. A picture of the guys in one of the salmon smokehouses in Circle, AK. They were starting the smoke of their latest catch from their fish wheel. Our tenting spot in Circle, AK; complete with annoying story. The Yukon Trading Post at the end of the Steese Highway in Circle, AK. The Circle, AK Washeteria... a place where locals and tourists alike can use the pay showers and coin-operated laundry stuff.  

  Our cookout in a turnoff area just north of Denali National Park off of the Parks Highway. A picture of some fireweed off of the Elliott Highway on our way to Manley Hot Springs. A picture of Exit Glacier, just north of downtown Seward. One of the fine eating establishments in Fairbanks; serving very good pizza just off the UAF campus. (Oddly enough...) This is one of the outposts that the Russians had for fur trading when they owned Alaska.  

  One of the tenting spots that we had at the Tenana Valley Campground. We stayed there three nights, each night in a different spot. This is the Salty Dawg Bar where Billy and Lorelei stuck a Sven and Ole's sticker on the wall which happened to be there one year later. This is Bud, whom we bought the yellow vehicle from. I still think it's quite odd having a healthy friendship with a person that you've bought a used car from. *shrugs* He's got a nice cabin and place on the Kenai River and I always enjoy time with Bud and his wife. This is a picture of the banks of the Kenai River where there are small holes in the bank where birds nest. This is a picture of some of the glaciers floating around near the Portage Glacier visitor center.  

  Another picture of the Portage Glacier visitor center glaciers. This is our tenting spot during the 4th/5th of July on the Resurrection River outside of Seward. This is a picture of the 5th of July fireworks in Seward. (Yes, 5th of July, doesn't get dark enough until after midnight to shoot them off.) This is one of the apparent residents of the Seward harbor, enjoying dinner underneath the fish cleaning pier. One of our many lunch stops, this is off the Steese Highway on our way to Circle.  

  Another picture of our lunch stop. This is our tenting spot outside of Sterling.
