We started the day in Seattle, WA and flew to Fairbanks, Alaska with a layover in Anchorage. Then, we were loaded into a bus, and taken to our hotel, the Riverside Wilderness Princess Lodge in Fairbanks. We got into the lodge fairly late, but we did catch a shuttle to the city. Not much to see in downtown. We took a walk on a river trail, saw a steel drum band performing in a park, and found a sandwich shop to eat in. We had to have our bags packed and out the door by 6:00 am for loading so we went back to the lodge and called it a night.
