We visited beautiful downtown Talkeetna, town of about 800
mostly vendors selling their wares to us tourists. The town is an aviation and supply base for Mount McKinley climbing expedition so we met many young hikers and climbers who were setting out
to the challenge of McKinley.

Flowers everywhere. These beautiful pansy like flowers
really caught my eye.

The Museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry has
historic aircraft, railroad equipment, farm machinery and heavy equipment. We climbed all over the train and even rode in the caboose.

Dick especially liked the tractor displays. Again he's exhibiting those farm tendencies. I'm glad he didn't get out his overalls.
