From historic Downtown Talkeetna a painter can indulge in everything from antique vehicles, rugged log roadhouses, and old-time small-town architecture to impressive glacier-fed rivers and views of North America’s largest mountain, Denali. Also known as Mt. McKinley, this peak has a greater bulk rise than even Mt. Everest and so you can imagine the presence it has in the already epic Alaskan landscape.
With deep roots in aviation this town serves as the main hub for climbers hoping to summit Denali and surrounding peaks. Charm and character is prevalent among the buildings that line Main St.; many paying homage to the town’s past.
