Before our cruise this summer, we are going to Talkeetna for two days as well. We'll be there July 9 & 10. Can't wait. We scheduled Talkeetna Canyon River Trip with Tri-Rivers and flightseeing Mt. McKinley with Talkeetna Air Taxi. Both are supposed to be great. Look on the internet for flightseeing Mt. McKinley, the pictures on the different sites of different carriers will convince you. I was told to use Talkeetna Air Taxi or Talkeetna Aero Service because they are local experienced fliers who live there year round. Don't just go up north, get hired & fly for the season.
