A Little Jaunt to Talkeetna

Mt McKinley (aka Denali here)

Our first meal was at the Twister Creek Restaurant

One of the little shops in town

A pizza joint

Local transportation (or used to be perhaps?)

The Roadhouse - worth the experience.  A place to grab affordable homecooked food and a place to lay your head

Inside the Roadhouse

This is the Chinook Winds cabin where Tim and I stayed with our family.  It was clean, affordable and we all slept great except Tim who forgot his c-pap machine.  We hoped to see some northern lights, but that didn't happen.

Isn't Talkeetna quaint? Looks like a good time by all.

Looks like a cute place to visit. Glad you had a good time. :)

"WOW", I haven't been there in about 15 years. I may have to visit there this summer and see what it's like.

I don't think at least half the town could have changed much for at least 40 years (it looks pretty run down), but it was still an enjoyable place to visit. If you go, let me know how it has changed.

I sure will. I'll be going up that way this summer on my way to the Deali Highway.
