On The Richardson Highway--Fairbanks to Delta
On the Richardson Highway heading south from Fairbanks--about nine in the morning. We encountered a stretch of fog along the Tanana River south of Eielson AFB. You can see the first of it in the distance.
From the Tanana Valley, the closest peaks of the Alaska Range---Mt. Hayes, Mt. Hess and Mt. Deborah-- wear a fresh coat of snow. The first snow of the season is known as "termination dust" and paints a ruler-straight line across the slopes.
