The North Pole


About an hour north of Denali National Park is North Pole, Alaska, home of Santa and everything Christmas.

So here I am. Don’t I look excited…

Santa’s workshop

They receive thousands of letters here every year. The local school answers the letters as part of their homework. You can even send someone special a letter postmarked with this address.

This is the house where Santa was born according to North Pole, Alaska legend.

This is one of many Christmas themed street signs in town. I even went to the North Pole police station and got one of their patches. It has Santa on his sleigh with a candy cane lamp-post lighting the way.

  Back in Denali, we spent sometime in the small tourist trap that has grown up outside the park.

There are several places to eat here and shop.

Potty break.

And this is how our day ended, another rainbow. Next time, the Denali National Park bus trip to Kantishna.

Travel Tip:

Something to remember about traveling in Alaska, in the summer it doesn’t get dark until midnight, and then it only stays dark for a couple of hours. It makes sleeping tough and judging time even harder.
