Iditarod trail headquarters, the dogsledge ride

At the Iditarod headquarters you can go on a short trip with some dogs. it costed 10$ in July 2005. For that 10 $ per person you are loaded in a cart on wheels, with 4 to 6 people and are driven around for exactly 1min and 15 seconds..........
The dogs seemed to like to draw the cart though.

Unique Suggestions: Go into the headquarters and see the film about the world famous dog sledge race. See some of the dogs that are outside and try to capture apicture of the blue dog eyes. There were some pups too when we were there.........cute.

Talkeetna - Alaska

Talkeetna

Talkeetna

Talkeetna is advertised as 'beautifull downtown Talkeetna'. But we could not find the beauty of downtown. It was filled with tourists, either on their way to Denali or returning from it. The town is supposed to be historical because of the railroad. But the few historic houses we saw were turned into commercial buildings.
We didn't think it was worth getting of the main road for.

Unique Suggestions: There is a museum in Talkeetna in a one-room schoolhouse built in 1936.

Fun Alternatives: Stay on the mainroad to Denali and spend some more time in nature.
