Trapper Creek, Alaska
Trapper Creek RV Park
I had to take a couple more photos of the mountains before we left Palmer.
I'm sure you're tired of seeing scenery photos, but I'm not tired of taking them.
Boo came over for her morning visit. I'm not sure how long she was sitting on our top step waiting for us. I looked out and saw Harry in shorts packing up.
We arrived at our destination, and it was only 10 am. Of course, check in was at 2 pm. The park personnel weren't even here yet.
We pulled the rigs around the back side near the airport. Yes, this park has an airport.
I got out the rummy game and we all played rummy on the picnic table until Leroy arrived. As we were standing outside, we saw Anne and Briggs go by and they blew their horn.
It didn't take long to get backed in and set up. We actually have 50 amp full hook ups. It's a good thing as our water was almost depleted and our holding tanks were pretty full.
Once we were set up we decided to drive to Talkeetna. It's only about 3 miles away as the crow flies. Unfortunately, its 30 miles if you don't have a boat.
The town was full of bused in tourists from the cruise lines and Denali. They could care less about anyone but themselves. They would walk right out in front of the truck.
We got the only available parking space in front of Mahay's. We booked the wilderness excursion tour for 6:30 tomorrow. Using our tour saver book, we either spent $75 that we didn't need too, or we saved $75 on the get one free with purchase coupon. I'll let you know tomorrow whether we saved the $75 or not.
When we arrived here, we paid for two days. We all immediately liked this place even though we had to back in. The people here are so nice. I love this pavilion that is convenient for every site. Did I mention they also have a small cafe with an ice cream store? The other reason Carlena and I picked this place is we need to do laundry and it has a very nice one.
I found another reason to extend our stay, but I'll wait to tell you about it at a later time.
Oh yes, we can see Denali from here but I didn't have my camera out.
