BEFORE we got ON THE ROAD AGAIN...I had to take just a few more pics of the Alaskan Range from the back deck of McKinley Lodge. Then the four of us took to the tour bus for our passage to the Alaska Railway Depot back in "downtown" Talkeetna. The rail ride was wonderful with upper-deck seating and food service in the lower-deck dining car. The fall colors were even more vibrant as we headed north to Denali Princess Lodge just outside the Denali National Park entrance. Four and one-half hours later, we arrived at our destination. Our view is now the back side of the Alaskan Range...and what a site it is! We settled into our rooms in the lodge and then attended a diner theatre production: "The Music of Denali".
