  1. I lived in Fairbanks from 1977 until 1993 – my oldest son still lives there, so we get to go visit often. 2 summers ago we drove the 10,000 round trip!

    Pretty hat!

  2. This hat really is cute…now, what I’d love to see is the fit on a child…any chance you can find someone to put it on? Just trying to picture how it fits, how far down the head, how much “left” on top…love it.

  3. Oh, the trip up to Alaska is SO long. I grew up in Ketchikan so it’s not nearly as far as Ketchikan, but it still took me all day to get to college in Indiana. My brother lives in Fairbanks now, that is one cold place! I hear the summers are really nice though.
