Compeau Trail, outside of Fairbanks, AK

Posted by: Janis Putelis
We headed out the Chena Hot Springs road about 30 miles and hiked the Compeau trail to the top of Twin Bears Peak.  It is a multi use trail so it could be atv'd and mountain biked as well.  Trail was in top notch condition.  The Aspens and Birch trees are finally leafing out giving the woods a lime green glow.

One of many botany lessons for Aina.

Twin Bears Peak offered a nice view.

On the way home we stopped on the Chena river and I managed to find a Grayling that wanted  to eat a  dry fly.

The Grayling is definitely a fish that pictures do no justice.  The colors on the side  and the dorsal fin rival that of any Rainbow trout.  I'll get better pics in the future to show them off!
