We continued on to Fairbanks today grabbing our necessities in town. Gas, Groceries, and some local beer. Amongst our groceries we sought out some Alaskan specialities including Caribou Steak Alaska and Polish Reindeer Sausage. On our way out of town we also found some Muskox but they...

Animals with idenity...
