Thought I would check in with the regional experts. My travels to Alaska this summer; after D2D and after a run up the haul road, place me around Fairbanks and Anchorage on the 3rd/4th of July. Before I head down to Homer, looking for some recommendations for something to do on the 4th of July. Any fun places or events to be at? I think I read about some crazy run up a mountain somewhere? I won't be doing that but would love to have a beer or three. I assume most of you tend to get the heck out of town, but I won't mind a day or two off the bike. Looks like July 4th is on a Wednesday this year so not sure if there will be things going on that day or on the bookend weekends. Do I have to wear sunglasses for firework at this time of year?
