There’s a quiet little trail at the end of C Street (the Roadhouse is on Main & C Street) that goes through an area we call Government Lot 9. Since tomorrow is a Borough election day (and Government Lot 9 is a Borough park), and we have no snow on the ground yet, figured I’d share a picture from a recent stroll through those woods. Tiny little green things keep popping out from under the fallen leaves. We are so lucky that there are these handful of peaceful pockets of woods all over downtown. When the crowds get a bit thick on Main Street in the summer I often chose these trails to venture home, or just dip into some quietness. In the winter, I endeavor to keep the ski trails opened up. Think about swinging in for a sweet treat then exploring these special #beautifuldowntowntalkeetna treasures next time you visit or just zip into Talkeetna to check your mail.

We always recommend double checking with the particular venue/host organization to verify all events and happenings are still a ‘go.’ Things change fast…sometimes faster that we can update! Good places to find event information for Talkeetna – besides right here! – are the Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce Calendar of Events page and KTNA’s website under Today’s Announcements.

 
 

 

 
Take care!
