Talkeetna, Alaska

Talkeetna is a quintessential Alaskan gold mining town dating back to the early 20th century.

It has retained much of its character with dirt roads, log cabins and old clapboard shop-fronts. There is tremendous community spirit here and locals can often be seen playing fiddles or guitars and mixing with visitors and mountaineers who come to climb Mount McKinley in nearby Denali National Park.

This is the perfect place to try fishing, glacier trekking or take a light aircraft flight around the mountain.
