North Pole, Alaska


During the summer solstice in June 2010, I spent eight days and no nights in Fairbanks, Alaska. Here is a portion of the journey.

Did this one for the Kids. A drive southeast out of Fairbanks to the candy cane lined streets of North Pole Alaska, home of Santa Claus located at 101 St. Nicholas Dr. The Santa Claus House is where it is Christmas all year long. I sat briefly with Santa on one of the longest and warmest days of the year and asked him for a Red Rider BB gun. He didn’t tell me I’d shoot my eye out. He didn’t say much at all except that he was from Massachusetts. However, a postcard from Santa was sent to Maxwell and Andrew detailing my visit along with a note that they should continue to be on their best behavior for the rest of the year!
