Road to Anchorage


July 2006


On the road to Anchorage, we kept hoping for a glimpse of Mt. McKinley, but the weather did not cooperate.  We stopped along the way to visit the Alaska Veterans Memorial and took the Talkeetna Spur Road into Talkeetna.  Although they have a campground before you enter town, there is really no place in town to park a big rig like ours.  We managed to pull into the empty parking lot of Cafe Michele.  Since we ate lunch there and left a hefty tip, the owner let us leave it there for an hour so we could stroll through the picturesque little town.
