Then, the snow came...more like a blizzard really. Seeing the road was dangerously difficult, as the only guide I had was the snow plow drifts from the day before. A scary, cold 4 hours later, I arrived in Talkeetna.
Talkeetna, a quirky village in Matanuska Borough, is wildly popular in the summer months. It houses a fabulous lodge that is only open a few weeks in March for Aurora viewings. It opens again from mid-May to Mid-September.
Interestingly, on a clear day, one the best places to view Denali is from Talkeetna.

Only 20% of visitors get to see it because it creates it's own atmosphere of clouds.
