What’s good: Great skies, but no Alaska bears

Clouds turn dramatic at the end of the day.

Another beautiful day. This is getting old, nothing but great scenery. We spent much of the day around the Talkeetna area, which was the town they modeled the Northern Exposure TV show.

Mt. McKinley from Talkeetna, Alaska.

There are great views of Mt. McKinley and Denali National Park from town. It is the base camp for the mountain climbers and the town has a real Alaskan feel. We had breakfast at the old Roadhouse, we you sit at a big table with a bunch of other folks. It is a great way to talk to other travelers and locals.

It was clear all day and we drove to several places looking for bears, but we only found a porcupine. It went up a tree and posed for us.

The clouds rolled through late in the day, which made for dramatic shots.
