Talkeetna, Alaska - Town at the foot of Denali

The waitress at the Crow's Nest in Anchorage is from Talkeetna.  She recommended getting off the train and touring.  I'm not that brave!!!  So, I took photos to get a full view of all that Talkeetna had to offer.

Talkeetna is known as the base for expeditions to Denali (also known as Mt. McKinley). Tourists travel to Talkeetna each summer to fish salmon, raft and go flightseeing. Products from local artists, musicians and craftspeople are available in area stores. [Wikipedia]

This is the railside restroom at the Train Depot.

From the Latitude 62 Lodge website:
Latitude 62° Lodge is centrally located in Talkeetna, Alaska, a town at the foot of Denali. The Lodge is adjacent to the State Airport and the Alaska Railroad Depot and a five-minute walk to "Beautiful Downtown Talkeetna".
"The Latitude" has a full service restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. We specialize in fresh Alaskan Seafood, charbroiled steaks and the world famous Latitude Burger!

 Cabins in the area.

 Restaurants have the umbrellas up and ready for customers.

Well, that is it.  All of Talkeetna.
