Thank you for joining me on this stop on my 2017 Journey To Alaska. Today by the use of pictures and video clips we will check out Hope, Alaska.
Currently home to fewer than 200 residents, Hope was once packed with 3,000-all drawn by gold fever. In 1889, a few years before the Klondike gold rush began to lure people north, a miner discovered nuggets in nearby Resurrection Creek. Soon prospectors found gold in nearby Six Mile Creek, and the rush to Turnagain Arm began. According to local lore, this growing community of tents and cabins chose to name their town after the youngest rusher to step off the next boat-17-year-old Percy Hope. Whether or not the story is true, the name certainly evokes the optimism of every prospector who arrived in Hope in search of a fortune.

Northernmost City in America - Barrow, Alaska
Barrow is a small village on Alaska's Arctic coast. It is the northernmost community in the United States, and nearby Point Barrow is the country's northernmost point. The town has a small city center, home to businesses, schools, government offices and the Wiley Post-Will Rogers Airport. Browerville is the city's residential area. What was once home to the Naval Arctic Research Lab is now Ilisagvik College, the only tribally controlled community college in Alaska.
About 60% of the population is Native American, primarily Inupiat, and Inupiat traditions remain widely practiced. Tourists can get a taste of those traditions at the Inupiat Heritage Center.
It is cold - temperatures climb above freezing only 120 days a year. So although there's plenty of coastline, you're not likely to hit the beach while in Barrow.
The North Slope Borough is a bit misnamed around Barrow. The landscape there is flat and desolate, isolating the city from other towns in Alaska.
Although Barrow doesn't look historic, it's actually one of the oldest settlements in the United States. Archaeologica evidence suggests that Inupiat from the Birnirk Culture lived in the area as much as 1500 years ago.
The Photos (in order)
A92A0184 - Once an old whaling station, this is the Oldest frame building in Barrow; beyond it is the whalebone friendship arch, a popular photo stop for visiting tourists
A92A0179 - A polar bear skin dries on someone's rooftop
A92A0186 - According to our guide, this is an archaeological site that once featured pit houses; I assume that it's tied to the Birnirk culture, but don't remember the details from that long-ago visit
A92A0178 - View of the Arctic Ocean from Point Barrow, the northernmost point in the United States
A92A0180 - Barrow sits atop about a permafrost layer that's more than 1000 feet deep; it provides convenient year-round cold storage, although it can also make the ground unstable for road and building construction, especially as the Arctic experiences warmer temperatures
A92A0151 - The Top of the World Bridge; many sites note that they are the northernmost site of their kind in the country
A92A0154 - This is the Point Barrow Long Range Radar Site, part of the Distant Early Warning Line established in 1954 and now part of the North Warning System; you'll see the world's northernmost totem pole here, too
A92A0205 - American humorist Will Rogers and famed aviator Wiley Post died in a plane crash just outside Barrow in August 1935; this memorial pays tribute to both men, and Barrow's airport is named after them

Vlog #27: Camping with friends on the Homer Spit.
We spent 10 days in Homer and was probably one of our favorite places in Alaska. We met up with a bunch of friends and got to camp with them right on the beach on the Homer Spit. As it normally happens, when we are having fun hanging out, I end up not shooting as much video.
