Nice shots, we have NO industry here, unless you consider Tiki bar an industry!

Default Port of Nenana, Alaska

Well it isn't much by looks, but in the small photo at the bottom is the entire "Port" City of Nenana, Alaska, population is about 400+-. The river going under the Bridge to the right is the Tanana River. The riverfront has two barge companies in town and a third just out of sight on the upper right of the bend. At the bottom of the photo is the rail road tracks, the bridge crosses the river just below the nose of my plane.

From the Tanana River the barges follow down stream to the Yukon River and from there carry freight both directions to many of the river towns in interior Alaska and even Coastal towns on the western side of Alaska from the mouth of the Yukon.

Nenana was the site where President Harding in 1923 drove the last spike in the connection between Nenana and Fairbanks. As a note, sadly he died of pneumonia on the way back to Washington D.C. after his Alaska visit. Although the Railroad had been operation between Seward and Nenana for some time before that connection to Fairbanks.

Default More drilling rigs

One of the man made drilling islands off shore of the North Slope of Alaska.

They do have a problem with the polar bears coming up and standing on the white bags full of gravel and can't be seen easily to warn the work crews about them, which is a constant year round problem.

Rance, I love the perspective in your third pic down.

And, Barkingowl, I love your shot with the water and the mountains and clouds in the background.

Great job!

I took these photos from my car on the way to work this morning. This is a Praxair gas company. Kind of cool. I wanted to take more,
but was afraid Security would come after me. Also, there's a police station about 100' to the right of what you see in these pix.
