Gregg and Hans Tour Alaska

Departed Ophir for McGrath the next morning. On the way, we flew over Takotna. The strip is chiseled into the top of the mountain that sits above the town. Winds were a bit squirrely up there. We landed and met a guy, Buck Turnbull, who was helping to relocate the airstrip to another location. He said there was nothing in Takotna, so we left.

Last night on the trail.

We found this cabin along the river. It was in good condition and someone was obviously using it regularly.

I'm not sure what Hans is looking at here.

More old deserted buildings from the old town site.
