The Great Outdoors in Fairbanks

Hey Future and Current Nanooks,
About a week ago I decided to go climbing and hiking out at Angel Rocks about 50 miles out of Fairbanks. The weather was beautiful, and it was a great hike. Afterwords, I went out to the Chena Hot Springs Resort and went for a soak in the natural hot spring. Since I was there, I also went to the Aurora Ice Museum, which is the world's largest year round ice facility. Of course, being from Alaska, ice is nothing new to me, but it was fun to see all the carvings in one of the hottest months of the year.

One of the great things about living in Fairbanks and attending UAF is that you are IN Alaska. If you have any interest in the great outdoors, this is a pretty great place. We highly encourage our students to get out an enjoy it with our wide array of intramural sports and our Outdoor Adventure Office. If you're coming up for Orientation, be sure to check out the Wilderness Welcome!

Thanks for reading, and excelsior!
Joe
PS: Photos coming, they're on my camera at home.
