Visiting the 'banks

Mom spent a few days with me in the 'banks. We hit all the hotspots: took in a play, went to Chena Hot Springs where we soaked in the pools and sat at an ice bar in the Ice Museum. We traveled the Chena River on the Riverboat Discovery with a stop at a re-created Athabascan village. Saw the pipeline, and viewed fall color. Unfortunately mom didn't get to see any moose.
At the pipeline outside of town.

At the Ice Museum at Chena Hot Springs.

Along the Chena River. Notice the snow in the background.

Lots of fall color!
Next the the salmon that is drying and smoking.
Next to some large animal at the Athabascan village.
Lucky for mom, she was able to participate in
our first real snow of the season.
