Fall is in full swing here in Interior Alaska. The leaves are turning, the air is cooler, the fireweed has gone to seed, and the birds have stopped for a break on their way south. We headed to Creamer's Field to check out the sandhill cranes and the geese as they made their biannual stop here.

This weekend Husband and I took a 3 hour riverboat tour down the Chena River. We watched a bush plane flying demonstration. We saw a sled dog team pull an ATV (the motor had been removed). We visited a replica of an Athabascan Native village, where we learned about their way of life. It was great way to spend an afternoon.

It was a gorgeous day to be out on the river
