It was so exciting to get on the plane to Anchorage, where we were to meet up with Steve and Susan again after 11 years. It was a lovely flight over clouds and mountains that made it feel as if it was indeed a whole new world we were entering.
After meeting up without any waiting time by either couple we were off to Talkeetna to stay the night. Unfortunately The Mountain was covered in cloud and has stayed that way ever since - cloud or haze. There was plenty more to see - this is a very green and beautiful place in summer. We stayed the night in little log cabins with huge mosquitoes buzzing at the windows trying to get in.
