Trapper Creek, Alaska

This morning we finally left Palmer on our way toward Denali. We stopped overnight in Trapper Creek Inn and Campground. It is a pleasant isolated setting along the road; surprisingly we got a full hookup with 50 amp service and wifi. Our Verizon phones also worked in this out of the way place. Once we were parked and had lunch, we went for a drive to Talkeetna and see the sites there/ Turns out it is just a little tourist town with a lot of places offering flights to see Mt McKinley. There were places to view the Mt, however it was just too overcast. We walked around a bit and had an ice cream cone, then headed back.

There a lot of really large hanging baskets here in Alaska.

This is one of the places that offered flights over Mt. McKinley.

After dinner we decided that we would go for a drive and see if we could find a spot to see Mt. Mckinley. We found a couple of places but the cloud cover was too thick so we head back to the bus. On the way we spotted a new store and thought we would check it out, however it was closed.
