Rain, rain go away... Give us a break today! We ventured out to the visitor center hoping it would clear up. The visitor center has a museum which told the story of Fairbanks past.

We ran into a couple from Minnesota we had seen on the road a couple days back. It is always fun to hook up with fellow travelers as we go. Everyone has the same adventure in mind but have their own stories or mishaps.

We went to Pioneer Park to walk around.

The park was created in 1967 as the Alaska Centennial Park to commemorate the 100the anniversary of their U.S. territorial status to provide a taste of Alaska. It has historic buildings moved from original downtown locations, small shops, food and is geared for families. There is picnicking, playgrounds, and train rides.
