According to the Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce, the town's name, loosely translated from area's Athabascan people, means "River of Plenty". More specifically, it means "He is Keeping Something Stored for Himself". Either way, the Chamber encourages you to visit.
The weather is good and the group plans to fly out from "River of Plenty & Self Storage" today to the Denali Base Camp. Talkeetna Air Taxi will be flying them to the Denali Glacier Base Camp on DeHavilland Otters or Beavers or similar varmint outfitted with ski landing gear.
