Talkeetna is a very small town located at the confluence of three rivers, the Susitna, Chulitna and Talkeetna.   This historic little town (no pictures of the town) is quite a tourist stop.  The place was swarming with people brought in by tour buses, probably off cruise ships docked in Anchorage.  We chose the solitude and peace of a hike along the river (we thought - until we discovered they take very noisy jet boat tours out of Talkeetna.  They seemed somewhat interesting, although rough and very loud smelly rides.  If the weather had been nicer, we probably would have taken one of the trips in the hopes of catching sight of Denali Peak.  But, it was completely overcast the entire time we were at Talkeetna (we camped there).  We had no opportunities to see Denali Peak.
