We have been staying in Fairbanks for nearly 2 weeks so thought we would drive east and use the Richardson Highway. The sun was out , it was 60F in October, and we had the road much to ourselves. It follows the Chena River and at mile post 346 is a worthwhile stop to see the Flood Control Project for Fairbanks. We found out at the Fairbanks Community Museum(known as the Dog Mushers Museum on Tripadviser) about the terrible flood of Fairbanks in 1967 so it was interesting to view the massive 5 mile long dam .now in place to stop any further flooding. The mountains of the Alaska Range get ever closer as one passes Delta Junction and we enjoyed the scenery a lot. There is a very good gift shop called Knotty in Salcha Milepost 32 which serves excellent Alaskan ice cream.
