images are a collection of my explorations of Hope and Homer on the
Kenai Peninsula, and one from Talkeetna, on the Parks Highway.
Hope is an old gold rush town founded in 1889, before the more famous
ones up north. Some of the original buildings are still here. Many
have been moved to the local museum grounds.
windows, left and right adorn gold rush era cabins in the museum's
historical park. Homer, at the southern end of the Kenai Peninsula,
is a major fishing port and tourist magnet. There's a yard for derelict
boats on Homer Spit. The windows, bottom center, reveal living quarters
on a double decked boat high and dry in this yard.
Talkeetna, the base for Denali climbers, had
one store window of interest, top center.
