TALKEETNA HISTORIC HOMESTEAD TOUR ON ATV.
In 1959 the DeVore family traded the comfort of their Michigan home for the harsh conditions of Alaskan homesteading. Dennis DeVore takes you back to yesterday on this fascinating and very unique tour of the "Old Family Homestead", accessible only by trail. This Alaska Wilderness Tour offers a narrated tour of Historic Talkeetna and a rare opportunity to visit an original and remote Alaskan Homestead, 5 miles north of Talkeetna. During this "Talkeetna Alaskan Adventure", guests will enjoy a scenic ride and drive your ATV on this adventure. You will view the original cabin and various implements and tools used, to learn how early day pioneers survived living in the wilderness of Alaska.
Next, it is on to a lunch at Dennis' personal cabin on Wiggle Creek, on the back quarter of the homestead. After lunch you may try your luck at gold panning on Wiggle Creek, relax with a game of horseshoes, croquette, or berry picking (depending on the season). The fresh air, the silent serenity of the forest, and the murmur of Wiggle Creek takes you a million miles away. Weather permitting, you will have an excellent opportunity to capture photos of Mt. McKinley and wildlife. A deli style lunch is included on this tour.
