We woke up early and drove down to the Anchorage train station to board our train. The kids explored the mostly empty train and we took off.
We rode through Talkeetna and up into the wilderness. The whistle-stop train stopped whenever someone was standing by the tracks.
We spent much of our time in the dining car, eating a picnic lunch and enjoying the view.
The train slowed so we could get pictures of Denali.
We turned around on the Hurricane Gulch bridge and headed back for Anchorage. We napped on the way back. We pulled back into Anchorage, tired, but still excited about our train ride.
