Hogfamily road trips to Hope and Talkeetna.

Hope is one of our favorite Alaska towns.

“In 1889, a group of gold miners searched for a name to call their fast growing community of prospectors. It was agreed that the town would be named for the next soul to step off one of the boats shuttling newcomers to the area. Along came young Percy Hope, and an Alaskan town was born. For the early settlers, a more appropriate name could not exist. Hope was what drove most of those pioneers here in the first place. They flocked to the area for a stake in Resurrection Creek gold.”


We honed our gold panning skills with Gold Rush Peck…..

Talkeetna another favorite town.

“The historic village of Talkeetna is nestled at the base of North Americas tallest peak, Denali (Mt. McKinley). Talkeetna has an outstanding panoramic view of the Alaska Range that can be enjoyed and photographed from several places as you wander through our town, and discover what this unique location has to offer. Flight seeing, fishing, riverboat tours, hiking, Nordic skiing, dog mushing, mountain climbing, unique lodging, and great people.”

Some say “Talkeetna, a great little drinking village with an awesome view of Denali.” (Mt. McKinley).

We would not be good Alaskans if we did not have photos of animal skins hanging on a wall…..
