Talkeetna, Alaska

When we were looking for a place to spend a few nights in Alaska, I didn't do a search for a hotel. I searched for cabins. We were happy with our stay at McKinley Creekside Cabins. And we were even happier with our stay at the Talkeetna Wilderness Lodge and Cabins.

How could you not when your cabin looks like this?
How can you not when you can sit on your porch in the morning, with a view like this, soaking up the warm Alaskan sunshine?
It was down a gravel road several miles outside of Talkeetna. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Peace and quiet.

After some time spent in that morning sun, we headed into Talkeetna for breakfast. On the way we came across quite the view. After two days of clouds, Denali popped out. Just spectacular.

Then we made our way to a place called the Talkeetna Roadhouse. I sat down and hubby got wide eyed. He pointed to a sign right behind me. See that sign? It said Adam from Man v. Food sat in the exact same spot I was sitting.
Here's the view from my seat (instead of the sign on the wall).
 I went with a breakfast wrap, hubby went with biscuits and reindeer sausage gravy. Of course, he added plenty of pepper.
Then I saw these raspberry cinnamon rolls in the case.
While we weren't hungry anymore, we just had to try one. Oh. My. Goodness. Best thing ever!
