Chena River State Recreation Area is about 30 miles from where we live. The park is covered in hiking trails, fishing ports, and other great AK nature stuff. Chena Hot Springs road runs straight through the park and at the end is THE chena hot springs. We decided to check it out and do some hiking.
|They still think they are hiking to Chena Hot Springs. Silly kids.|
|Camera incident one- Just dropped the camera case. Travis got it before it fell completely in the water. Thanks mister.|
|Top of Angel Rocks.|
|Camera incident two- Didn't like the angle of the first shot, so I reset the timer. The camera fell and would have plummeted hundreds of feet below, but it wedged itself nicely between a crevice in the rocks. Thank you crevice.|
|We made it through the swarms of mosquitoes (note my done up collar) at the bottom and didn't get eaten by any bears.|

|Fairbanks is well known for the gold rush and still has a working gold mine off of Old Steese Hwy. Also, Travis told me it was my turn to be in a picture.|
|We can now say that we have driven until we could drive no more.|
|The last 1000 feet, which ended at Chena Hot Springs.|
We had fun exploring around our neck of the woods and can't wait for next weekend and backcountry packing!
