Two RV Gypsies: Full-Time RVers
The two RV Gypsies enjoyed
a scenic drive on Hatcher Pass
July 27, 2009
|If you ask Alaskans about a hidden escape right in south central Alaska, you will probably be told to go to Hatcher Pass (a.k.a. Fishook-Willow Road). It was a beautiful drive with rivers, wildflowers, mountain peaks, and gold rush history. Alaskans flock here when the sun shines. The road parallels Little Susitna River before climbing toward the alpine tundra. There were several pullouts along the road. The two RV Gypsies drove this in their toad, not their big RV.

|Below: The two RV Gypsies took a turn off of Hatcher Pass onto Archangel Road just to see where it went. After several miles of a dirty bumpy road, they took a few photos and turned around and went back to Hatcher Pass because it seemed as though the road would continue forever since it was heading towards the mountains.

|Below: Knik Glacier could be seen in the far distance; the same glacier the two RV Gypsies took the ATV ride to. It is amazing because it is really so darn many miles away and yet could be seen from Hatcher Pass.
