Moving South to Wasilla

Awakening once again to the pitter-patter of rain on the roof, we got up slowly knowing that we had to close up the trailer in the rain. This was after a very poor night’s sleep brought about by the locals still enjoying the Moose Dropping with riding ATV’s around the area and setting off fireworks well into the morning. By the time we were ready to close down the rain was a mere sprinkle and we were soon on our way.
The drive from Talkeetna to Wasilla was a short one and after a few stops for geocaches we were soon set up in the campground.
We were near the Headquarters for the Iditarod Race so that was our first stop after getting lunch and gas. At the race headquarters they have a cart set up with a set of racing dogs and you can purchase a ticket to get to ride behind a team of dogs. So, of course, I had to do this. They also had 6 week old puppies that you were able to pet and cuddle. So I had to do that too. They also have a very nice video on the race and the dogs.
leaving the Iditarod Headquarters we drove farther down
On the way back to the campground, I stopped and got my hair cut and then we stopped at WalMart to do some food shopping.
Tomorrow we will explore Wasilla some more.
