Brad accompanied me on a recent business trip, and I have to say, I like having someone around to carry my suitcase. Our first stop was Anchorage, where we drove up to Denali State Park, not to be confused with Denali National Park.
The state park offers great viewing stations of the south and north facing slopes of Mt. McKinley. Although it was cloudly upon our arrival, we enjoyed the drove to and from. On the way up Parks highway, we stopped in Talkeetna for lunch. This little town is now a tourist trip with a hippie flare. We dined at Mile High Pizza Pie, where we enjoyed reindeer sausage flatbread sandwiches.
