Hurricane Turn, part II

Another Sunday morning drive to Talkeetna for a ride on the Alaska Railroad Hurricane Turn.  The first stop in town is always at the Roadhouse for an awesome breakfast. The next stop is to see Jack at the Alaska Railroad Depot for a ticket and information. A beautiful day and Denali (Mt McKinley) was out and visible all day.  One of the best trips with a great crew and incredible scenery.

Denali looms large over an incredible landscape.

The baggage car is used for storing all the gear.

The famous Sherman City Hall.  I just read 
Mary Lovell's books about homesteading and raising a
family here, a great read and fascinating story!
