We woke up pretty late and we’re wondering if we should spend the two nights at Moon Lake State Park. Sean went outside to go fishing, but only got a nibble. We started to get ready at about 11:00 AM and right before we were on the road, Denver slipped out of his collar and ran off in to the lake. We think that he was going after a big log that was about 20 feet off of the shoreline. Mark dried him off and we hopped in the car for another day of driving.
It wasn’t the most exiting day of driving, but about an hour into the drive, we stopped at the Delta Junction Visitors Center, which also happens to be the end of the Alaska Highway. We had lunch, and then took some photos next to the sign, and some next to these huge Mosquitos, made out of scrap medal. Everyone got back in to the car and drove off heading for Fairbanks. We got to Fairbank at around 6:00pm and looked at different campgrounds to stay at. We finally decided to stay at Chena River State Campground. We settled in and after dinner we wanted to go to the volleyball courts. We played volleyball until about 10:30 PM and then went on a bike ride around Fairbanks until 11:00pm. The sun was still up the entire time we were biking and it never really got dark. It must be difficult for people who live in Alaska to go to bed during the summer. We all were tired when we got back to the campsite and we took showers and went to bed.
