Autumn is almost gone in Fairbanks and UAF held the Starvation Gulch bonfire/party last night. This was much larger than the event two years ago, when we were last there. The fires were bigger and lasted much longer, the crowds were larger, the music was louder. There was lot more energy in general. Last time the fires dwindled after half-an-hour and everyone just kind of wandered away. This year was pretty much an all-out rave.
