Only in Alaska could the falling-down-mess that Wal Mike's is become a sort of folk-hero. I have been rolling past Wal Mikes (as I run up and down the Parks Highway from Anchorage to Fairbanks and back) for over two decades and, until this visit,...More

You must not drive past Wal Mikes! He was born in my home town! Take lots of pictures, you won't be able to describe it without them. People will not believe you!!
