    We had trouble with our reservation even after make two confirmation calls a week before our arrival. Apparently they are a little disorganized in the front office. We were supposed to have a double room but on arrival only a room with a single double bed was available. This was inside the main building down a hall from the restaurant. The room was not much bigger than the bed with not closet space and a small bath. We were supposed to stay for three nights, but decided to leave after two. It was just too cramped. Apparently the rooms in the outer building with two beds are considerable larger. We thought the single bed rooms were way overpriced. The restaurant is only open for breakfast.

    ... We are watching Denali changing and clouds coming and going as the sun gets lower in the sky. A man behind us just exclaimed that we should wait til the sun goes down and we will get spectacular views and colours over Mt McKinley. Don't know if we can wait that long - could be 3am before the twilight starts. There is plenty of discussion about the weather in Anchorage/Whittier and further down the coast. ...

    ... Athabaskan languages of the Alaskan natives, and only 36% make it to the summit. This town grew from the depot and has since become a standard stop for tour buses and visitors headed to Denali. The outskirts of town is pockmarked with unmarked roads, and atv tracks. The historic downtown is made up of a few streets, log cabin shops and restaurants on either side. Sometimes the mountain is visible from Talkeetna, but not today with the clouds seemingly a permanent fixture near ...

Tuesday 16/6 - We did a short nature trail walk with the on-site Naturalist this morning before heading into Talkeetna to explore. It didn't take long to explore as it's a small town of less than 1000 people. It's at the junction of three rivers and that's what it's name means. It is ...

    Fishing with Bubba

    Met Bubba our guide and Bill and Martin from Florida for our 5 am fishing charter. We went up the Talkeetna River to the mouth of Larson Creek to fish, or, as Bubba said, "floss" for sockeye salmon. Only silver salmon feed after they reenter fresh water so you fish for sockeye with a bare hook and a bead or feather on it. Fish swim by and you hope the hook lands in their mouth. Often fish get caught in their bodies or ...

After flying through rain and black clouds, and checking out three different glaciers, Chip decided, and I concurred that it was simply too risky to put the plane down. It was still a nice, hour-long ride through the meanders, foothills, mine sites and ...
