2016 Epic Road Trip - Day 64

July 16, 2016

Talkeetna, AK to Anchorage, AK

Left Talkeetna today and headed south to Anchorage, with a couple stops in Wasilla. 

One last glimpse of Mount Denali.
 Marnie hadn't seen the Iditerod headquarters yet, so we re-visited, and it was during their open hours this time.  The founder of the Iditerod was Joe Reddington, Sr. 

His son lives in the area and has participated in about 14 years of the race.  He's retired now, but comes to the headquarters daily to show his dogs, talk about the Iditarod, and give rides on a sled.  In summer, the sled is a cart on wheels.  But the dogs seemed happy to run anyway.

If you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes.
Joe again.
We made a stop at WalMart in Wasilla, the largest of the WalMart in Alaska to buy duct tape - and help to keep their record of selling more duct tape than any other WalMart in the world.  It has little dogs on it.
