Journal Entry:
It was raining hard this morning and everything I had ended up wet while I was waiting for the bus, so I decided to bail on hiking Denali and get started towards Fairbanks. As I got near Fairbanks the weather cleared up and it was actually hot and sunny out. I got the information I needed on the Arctic Circle at the Forrest service office.

Before heading out of town (about 50 mi.) to find a campsite I decided to go see a movie, Men in Black (I recommend it), which turned into two movies, Face Off (don't bother). I got a nice campsite in a state park, and was all set up by shortly after midnight.
