WASHINGTON — Talkeetna, Ala., is possibly one of the most iconic south-central Alaskan towns. Filled with a delightful mix of artists, bush pilots, mountaineers, brew masters, and musicians, a diverse cast of characters populates the town of about 700 people.
Talkeetna was initially founded as a railroad hub for the Alaskan Railroad system in 1916. It is now connected to the Alaskan road system via the Talkeetna Spur off of the Parks Highway, about 2 ½ hours north of Anchorage. Visitors are often treated to spectacular views of the Alaska Range.
