Less jet lag today… Managed to sleep in till 7! Anyways, we attempted Snow City again, and failed again, so it was time to find a new breakfast spot. We found — The White Spot! Nice little diner, several of us got to experience the reindeer sausage breakfast sandwich. Was like a good kielbasa!
Then it was time to temporarily check out – next two nights at a Bed and Breakfast near Wasilla. On the way up, we stopped for a quick hike, and some amazing views:
Unfortunately, also some amazing mosquitoes.
Straight shot from the to Big Lake outside Wasilla, and Happy Trails Kennels. It’s a B&B run by Martin Buser (4-time Iditarod champ) and his family.
Mr. Buser turns out to be every bit as friendly and awesome as one would be led to believe from his TV appearances. His wife (or boss as he refers to her) encouraged us to play with the dogs (and not-yet-sled-dogs of the miniature variety). Thus:
Lazy evening, as there isn’t much in the immediate area. Day 3 – exploring around Wasilla.
