The Parks Highway, 9:31 pm
Fairbanks North Star Borough, Alaska (31 May 2011).
Day 01 of the 2011 Roadtrip from Alaska to Florida (Mile 0373 of 7221).
My first day of the transcontinental roadtrip from Alaska to Florida began to wrap up as I made my way north to and west from Fairbanks, Alaska. I wasn’t entirely sure where I’d stop for the night just yet… but I did stop to take a photo of the smoke-laden nighttime sky. Central Alaska can be prone to smoldering fires in the summer, and the sun, as you can probably imagine, is slow to retreat during the summer months. This photograph was taken at 9:31 pm.
