30(ish) Photographs that will make you fall in love with Fairbanks in January

Chena River in Fairbanks in winter

The January that felt like it was never going to end.

Now that the third-longest cold snap in Fairbanks history (and 17th coldest January on record) has finally broken, I wanted to share some of my favorite images from last month (all taken in January) that will make you fall in love with Fairbanks, even at temperatures in the -30’s.

I spent the majority of the month being sick with whoknowswhatcrud, limiting my clients for the month, so I spent a bunch of time driving around and photographing these beautiful scenes.

I saw lots of moose this month. Most of the time, it was dark. Other times, there was no place to pull over. This photo isn’t even in focus but it’s the only one I got!

Does anyone else take pictures through their Alaskan cracked windshields?
