Since driving to Alaska is out for us we decided a nephew's wedding was an opportunity we could not pass up. We flew to Anchorage rented a van and headed for Girdwood where the wedding was to be held.

So we headed down the Seward Hwy (AK-1) where we had rented a house for a couple of days. The wedding was held at Crow Creek Mine.

The Day before the wedding we headed up to the top of Alyeska Ski Resort on the tram.

The day after the wedding we took a Cruise on Prince William Sound to check out the glaciers.

The next day we turned in the rental van and took the bus to Talkeetna.

Had lunch at the ROADHOUSE

Stayed overnight in the Talkeetna Alaska Lodge and got a beautiful view of Mt. McKinley.

This mountain is not always available for viewing as it does produce its own weather. We were just really lucky.

Next it was on to Denali National Park and the Denali Bluffs Hotel.

To our delight we got to see some wildlife.

Then it was time to head back to the Anchorage Airport on the Alaska Railroad.

We left Alaska at 2:40am on Sunday Morning and arrived home by 10:00am. We were exhausted but overall it was a great trip. What a beautiful State.
