Note from the Publisher
As Publisher of Travel Guide I have had the opportunity to visit many locations and talk with hundreds of people. I have frequented a variety of businesses, visited museums and off-the-beaten-track locations, and enjoyed many excellent restaurants. I have experienced Alaska from the air, bear viewing with Andrew Airways on Kodiak Island, traveled the sea on the Alaska Marine Highway to Southeast and Southwest Alaska, and driven up the Alaska Highway to Dawson Creek and north to Alaska. I would like to share with you our Travel Guide Web, plus if you would like to click here to see some of my favorite digital pictures and video captures, please enjoy...

Alaskan Women in Business
Alaska Fur Gallery

In 1965, Hiram and Blanca Hernandez left Mexico to come to Alaska. Already 2nd generation furriers, they wanted to see what the Great Land had to offer. They established a retail store along with his brother and put down roots in the Anchorage community, where they would raise their family. That family would consist of seven children; four boys and three girls.


The three girls – Miriam, Magdalena (“Malena”) and Patricia spent their days after school working at the family fur store, becoming 3rd generation furriers, all the way through their high school days at East Anchorage High. They all swore that they would never be in the family business, instead choosing after high school to take separate paths. Miriam married and moved to Michigan, Malena went to college and traveled and Patricia worked for an airline and moved to California.  After a time of exploring their different career paths they all realized that what they really wanted and needed in their lives was the family business after all.  


In 1988 the Alaska Fur Gallery was established in Anchorage and by 1990 all of the siblings were a part of the venture.  In 1991 the Alaska Fur Gallery set up their store in Juneau, Alaska and by 1994 had built their own buildings in Juneau.  In 1995 they opened another location in Skagway, Alaska and since that time have had locations in Ketchikan, Sitka, and Denali, Alaska; along with locations in Vail and Breckinridge, Colorado; Sun Valley, Idaho; Park City, Utah and Vancouver, Canada.
