Good morning from Talkeetna, AK

Friday initiated my family and my adventures across Alaska. They, coming from Maine, met me at the Anchorage airport Friday afternoon where we set off for 10 days of travel. Yesterday we took the Alaska railway from Anchorage to Talkeetna. Talkeetna is an interesting, (to say the least) quaint, small small town. Very simple in every way. I found some cross country skiing trails where I was able to trail run and had some views of the Denali mountain range. Today we are headed on a small plane (death trap) flying us around Mt. McKinley and landing us on a glacier in the Denali range. I'm exciting to set my feet back on the snow, I will most definitely be making a snow angel! Here are some photos so far:
