My weekend, part 2

On Sunday, I decided to take a trip to Talkeetna, hadn't been there in about 22 years. Loaded up the car and away I went. The Spur road leading there isn't really photo worthy until you get to the overlook.



Got a picture of this guy, a little fuzzy



After sitting at the overlook for awhile, I drove into town. I didn't take any photos as I was very disappointed. Talkeetna was jammed packed with tourists and not a place to park. I know it is their bread and butter but, way, way, to many people for me. So, I drove to the end, turned around and headed back out of town. As I was headed down the Spur road back to Parks Highway, I spotted this sightseeing air service and pulled in. This is a very nice place just to spend some time resting.





There is a young gal working there who is really fun to talk to and very friendly. I just may go back with snacks and spend time there just enjoying the view. Anyway, on the way back, stopped at Subway and then, back to the cabin and lounged around.

It looks like a refreshing place. Even more so, I am sure with a friendly person to chat with.

We'll be in Talkeetna tomorrow. We stop there as a layover on the way back to Fairbanks. We have a camper, so we have a place to park, but I agree it can get too crowded there. We'll do a lap around town and that will be it.

John said...

Hey Susan, you sure picked a hot time to go to Talkeetnna, have fun

Carol G said...

Hey John, how are you holding up with the heat and those rascally skeeters?

John said...

Hi carol, the heat is killing me. Check the blog tomorrow. The skeets are terrible. Hope you're holding up.

Hi bert, thanks, glad you enjoyed the photos. That gal is a cutie but, way, way to young. The temps here are around 80 during the day and 50 to 60 at night. Still a bit warm but, better. Have a good trip and stay cool.
