This place is brilliant - lovely cabins, hand built by the owner and his wife (the amazingly friendly Peg) and located in just about the coolest (and quirkiest) town on Earth. I can totally recommend Talkeetna Cabins if you're ever in the area.

... a winner with the first one. We got a cabin at Susitna River Lodge. It slept 6 so with a king bed and 2 singles, we'd all share the first night. What better way to meet these new travel partners? We got there early enough to start getting our gear ready. Since Kim had no idea what was even in her suitcases, she definitely needed the time.
We weren't sure where to go, since we weren't familiar with the Talkeetna ...
... race and then look after the dogs and themselves at each stop. The whole race takes the winners 9 days and the biggest trial is sleep depravation (most mushers get about 1.5 hours each day). It sounds totally brutal. Buoyed up by a great morning, we get the shuttle to the train depot (the US lingo is sinking in!) to catch the bus to Denali Backcountry Lodge.

Mahay's jet boats into Devil's Canyon whitewater rapids. Tours were leaving in 10 minutes so we rushed to add another layer for warmth and throw on some decent shoes. The boat was just incredible.

... the rain and Talkeetna. After being on the road for a month and moving every day is is difficult to sit still in one place. I am the only one with deep connections to this town. I wanted to stay, play softball, and see the friends that were sure to show up for the tournament they have this weekend. It is a one pitch tourney and a bunch of fun. I was invited to play with a team called the Post-Gamers, a team form Anchorage that has been playing in ...

I’d gone by 7.15am & thought that would be ample time for me to cover the 60 ish miles to Talkeetna but I didn’t factor in my predilection to stop to take photos too often. Saying that I thought I was pretty restrained this morning. There really wasn’t much traffic on the road at all & it was a clear day so the drive on the Parks Highway was very pleasant. In addition Eddie & Sheila’s van was a pleasure to drive.
