Alaska - Day 11 - Talkeetna to Denali
On Sunday we once again boarded the Alaska Railroad and continued our journey north. We saw miles and miles more of beautiful Alaskan scenery and had another great meal on the train. This time it was lunch. The food on the train was very good, as I would expect from a dining car run by a cruise line, however, unexpectedly, the prices were fairly reasonable. (Taking into consideration we were in Alaska where everything is more expensive.)
After arriving in Denali we found out that Julie was able to book us on a flight for the following night so we decided at the last minute to go to Jeff King’s Husky Homestead. Jeff is a four time Iditarod winner. It was the next best thing to actually going dog sledding. It was a really great presentation, so great that I bought a copy of Jeff’s book (in audio book format actually.) Before heading back up the crazy driveway to the lodge we had dinner at a local restaurant called The Salmon Bake.
