Travel Tuesday: Talkeetna Roadhouse and Ruth Glacier

TALKEETNA –

For Travel Guru Scott McMurren and KTVA’s James Gaddis, the journey to Ruth Glacier began at the historic Talkeetna Roadhouse.

That’s where owner Trisha Costello serves heaping plates of hotcakes and other homemade fare to climbers preparing to venture into Denali National Park. For those looking for a lighter trip, flightseeing company K2 Aviation can bring adventurers high into the mountains to enjoy views like the one from Ruth Glacier.

From now through the end of May, Alaskans can enjoy 25 percent off their flight with the presentation of an in-state ID. And Costello said visitors can catch a night’s sleep and enjoy a hot Roadhouse breakfast year-round.
