Delta-Junction is located in southeast Alaska in the Fairbanks Census Area. As of the 2010 census, the population was 958 residents. It's approximately 160 miles south of Fairbanks. The city of Delta Junction is situated along the Delta River at the intersection of the Richardson Highway and the Alaska Highway (the towns sits at the end of the Alaska Highway.) An interesting note about Delta Junction is that in 1928, a herd of 23 bison were brought from the National Bison Range in Montana to the area to add an additional game species for hunters. The herd is now kept at a number of several hundred by the annual issuance of hunting permits. The 90,000-acre Delta Junction Bison Range, south of the Alaska Highway, was established in the early 1980s and the range is managed by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. There's lots to do in the Delta Junction area; fishing, hunting, birdwatching, wildlife viewing, photography, boating, camping and "flight seeing." The Big Delta State Historical Park features Rika's Roadhouse, which served travelers on the historic Valdez-to-Fairbanks Trail from 1909 to 1947. The roadhouse Has part of the original kerosene crate floor restored, and the bedroom and kitchen are furnished in the style of the 1920s and 1930s. The Sullivan Roadhouse Historical Museum is housed in the oldest roadhouse in the interior of Alaska, built in 1905. The log lodge is now home to a museum that focuses on the Valdez-Fairbanks Trail and features interpretive exhibits, rooms restored to their original beauty and interpretive pathways and gardens outside.

Delta Junction Weather & Climate

East-central interior Alaska has a subarctic climate with long cold winters, and short, warm summers. The weather is extreme, and a true example of a subarctic climate. Some of the coldest and warmest temperatures are seen in this region. Winter typically lasts from late September/early October until late April/early May. On average, the season's first snow falls around September 21, with a snowpack established by October 18. In winter, the direction of the wind causes large variations in temperature. When coupled with a chinook wind, temperatures stay well above freezing. Ice fog is also possible. This happens when air is too cold to absorb additional moisture. A notable meteorological occurrence in this region is the northern lights, which are visible on more than 200 days per year.
