Talkeetna to Healy and a view of McKinley

A travel blog entry by larryrox2


... that was just a little over a mile up from the interchange of the Talkeetna Spur with the Parks Highway. But that place didn't open until 11am so we killed a little less than a half-hour at the "new" (for us, wasn't here in 2008) 'Cubby Foods IGA' that's been built right at the junction. So we replenished our basic supplies and then went back for a 'birch tasting'.

A travel blog entry by robert.s.baron


We were a bit sleepy, but we made it the 249 miles to the Denali Park. The visitor center was closing so we purchased tickets for the bus ride through the park for tomorrow.

After asking for directions we finally found the motel. The ...
