We're here for the annual Alaska Bar Association and Judges' Conference -- well, I am, and Jim is exploring Fairbanks on his own.
At the afternoon break we got a chance to explore bits of old Fairbanks.
One evening event was a reception at the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center near the Chena River. It features the plane flown by Episcopal Bishop William Gordon Jr. all around the state (his son, Bill Gordon, served on the Alaska Judicial Council and is now on the Alaska Bar Board of Governors). The small planes always seem so tiny for such a huge state.
I didn't get a chance to post photos on the blog last night, so am including a few from yesterday's drive up the Parks Highway.
