Surrounded by wilderness the outdoor adventure lover can kayak, canoe, hike, fish and camp in the Fairbanks area and in the winter add to that dog sledding, snowmobiling and snowshoeing too.
There was this moment when I realized some of my most contented times are spent outdoors. Now I take every opportunity I can to be present in the physical landscape. My career as an artist gives me access to remote wilderness areas. In less than two hours I can be in Denali to the south or the Gates of the Arctic to the north. Whether you visit or live in Alaska, you should take a moment to explore the landscape and peoples around Fairbanks—it is real and raw, commanding and inspirational, it’s why we all come here and it's like nothing else.
