Parks Hwy to Denali & Fairbanks

You might be asking where are the pictures from the Glacier Landing, Mt McKinley and the Town Party.  Well, we are still sorting the pictures out.  We don’t want to throw just anyone on the blog.  They will be forth coming.  Here is a one photo summary..DSC_0180


Then Saturday we left Talkeetna and headed for Denali National Park.  The ride was pleasant and very scenic.  These pictures are of Parks Highway and a couple of local businesses.  Most businesses away from Anchorage and Fairbanks are small and rough in appearance but great in character.

Then we arrived at Denali. We rode in a way, but no animals.  The scenery has been what we have seen ever since arriving in Alaska for the most part.  We stayed outside the park at the Denali RV Park that we stayed at back in 2004.  That evening we went to the Denali Dinner Theater.DSC_0050



This Dinner Theater kept everybody rocking & rolling the entire night.  They even came outside before the doors were open.  They escorted everybody to their assigned seats pretty quick.  The tables were set with salad, drinks, etc.  They fed everyone in a very timely manner with entertainment along the way.  We got all you could eat & served to you.  We got salad, tea, coffee, potatoes, beans, bread, salmon and ribs.  Then it was finished off with fresh blueberry cobbler with whip cream.  Tables were cleared and the night continued as the servers became stage entertainers. It was great… DSC_0068

This young lady was the bartender.  Her name was Kitty.  When you wanted a drink your entire table would say (shout), “Here Kitty, Kitty.” She would come over and take your drink order.DSC_0080


We went back to our rig and it was another night out passed our bedtime.  This sunset was around midnight. DSC_0088



Sunday we left Denali and went on to Fairbanks.  The road was pretty good with about 20 miles of some big frost heaves.  We also ran into some smoke from the fires.  DSC_0093


We didn’t make our minds up where we were staying until we arrived in Fairbanks.  We did this just about the entire trip, no reservations anywhere. We decided to look at a park next to the fairgrounds that is ran by the fairgrounds, Tanana RV Park. It’s in the woods, water, electric & Wi-Fi for $20.  The smell of smoke is here in Fairbanks also.

See Ya…….
