In early July we stayed in Talkeetna, Alaska for a few days. Talkeetna is about a two and 1/2 hour drive from Anchorage, the largest town in Alaska.
Here are some photos of main street Talkeetna. The street is lined with cute, little one cabin shops like the one in the mosaic. I loved the wooden moose statues placed throughout the town too.
One of the town's major events is the Moose Dropping celebration held each July for the past 37 years. When we asked the RV park host about the event this year he said "It ain't goin' happen'!" According to him it was attracting a drinking crowd that knew this small town (of less than approximately 1,000 population) didn't have it's own police force.
Although the town of Cicely from the television series Northern Exposure is widely thought to be patterned after Talkeetna filming of that series actually took place in Roslyn, Washington.

We had a delicious supper at The Wildflower Cafe.
Another cute shop called the "Mostly Moose" gift shop.
A restaurant right next to our RV park. Isn't this a fun way to advertise?

If you are ever in Alaska don't miss visiting this delightful town.
Oops, I forgot to mention we are home! We arrived home yesterday from our Alaska summer journey after 105 travel days and over 13,000 miles driven. Needless to say we are glad to be home.
