We spent two nights in the lovely little town of Talkeetna. We had wonderful clear views of Mt. McKinley, which locals prefer to refer to as Denali. Talkeetna is located at the convergence of three rivers, the Talkeetna, the Chulitna, and the Susitna. It is the starting point for Mt. McKinley climbers and offers glacier landing fightimageseeing tours, scenic train excursions, and jetboat trips on the Susitna.
Tom had been looking forward to Halibut Olympia that he remembered from an earlier visit so we enjoyed it twice. We camped next to a very nice and interesting couple from Las Vegas and plan to catch up with them in Homer at the end of the month.
