Beautiful Fall day in Fairbanks

It turned into a lovely afternoon and I hiked downtown. Here is the view from the Steese Expressway bridge looking northwest towards Farmers Loop. No real reason for the photo except it is a pretty day.

The Chena River runs under the Wendell Street Bridge in the center of the photo. To the left is the edge of downtown Fairbanks. As Fairbanks grew, the community expanded across the river. The old city area known as Graehl (settled in the early 1900s) is to the right of the  river and the Wendell Street bridge.

The river bends to the left and Noyes Slough takes of to the right just on the other side of the Wendell Street bridge. Just beyond that is Slaterville, a subdivision developed in the 1930s on the old Charles Slater homestead.
