Fairbanks featured in Alaska Magazine

The March 2008 issue of Alaska magazine is running a feature titled: "Fairbanks - The Heart of the Interior" I've supplied them with photographs from the aurora and ice fog to the pure summer sunshine.

I'm often humored at the predictable response to the question of "where do you live". Whenever I respond "Fairbanks", something like this follows: Really? But you seem like a reasonable person, why would anyone live there, isn't it like minus 50 degrees in the winter and dark?

This little dialog has repeated itself countless times and interestingly, most often from Alaskans. Not to spoil a well kept secret, but Fairbanks is a great place to live, but it is also an extreme place to live as well. For those who relish in extremes, it is perfect. And yes, even the 50 below zero temperatures.
