We spent the day at the Chena Hot Springs Resort, located about 55 miles outside of Fairbanks. It operates year-round, with many hiking, camping, and rafting options in the summer and dog-sledding, snowshoeing, and aurora viewing in the winter. After a morning of relaxing and reading in the steamy, sulfury water of the springs, I spent the afternoon wandering and taking photos. I like this one because it evokes the balance of power between the two seasons: despite the overwhelming dominance of winter, the memory and promise of summer are still evident.
