--What is the elevation of Fairbanks?

 

While it's fairly obvious that Anchorage is pretty much at sea level, many people ask the elevation of Fairbanks because after driving up the highway from Anchorage, ascending into the Denali area, and then coming back down into the valley to Fairbanks, it' s difficult to gauge.

As long as we're addressing this question, we figured we'd add some of the elevations of other Alaska cities, along with the coordinates for each:
