Mahay's Jet Boat Adventure in Talkeetna, Alaska
June 30, 2009
The Wilderness Jetboat Adventure was a two-hour tour that cruised into Alaska's untamed wildland and although still 60 miles away from the great mountain of Denali, the two RV Gypsies got another great view of Denali.
The trip began aboard the "Talkeetna Queen" as it whisked the two RV Gypsies into the heart of the wilderness in comfort. This river jetboat was designed to safely navigate rivers that were previously inaccessible.

Next, the two RV Gypsies took a 1/4 mile leisurely nature walk through a Dena'ina Indian Encampment, a visit to an authentic trapper’s cabin with its original furnishings and a view of how trappers lived in "Bush" Alaska at the turn of the century. Plus a display of raw furs from the local area and a demonstration of trapping methods, and wildflowers and plants that grow in abundance along the river system and learned about the edible plants that were used by the Native Indians for cooking and medicines.

Since there were no cutting tools in those days, the logs were burned to the proper length

Mt. McKinley as seen from within 60 miles of it on a cloudy day, but they say this is the view only 30% of visitors are lucky enough to see - but later, the two RV Gypsies got photos with no clouds whatsoever.
