Overview of your Anchorage tour:

Visit this gold mining operation dating back to at least 1897 and now presented as Independence Mine State Historic Park. Situated in an absolutely idyllic part of the Talkeetna Mountains minutes from Hatcher Pass north of the city of Palmer off the Glenn Highway, the mine is a popular attraction due to its historic roots of Alaska and the relatively good condition of the buildings on site. Although there is obvious marks of deterioration of the wooden structures, it only adds to the rustic yet mystic feel of the mine and perfect motives for picture taking. In fact, this is also a popular destination among individuals seeking paranormal activities associated with the site. There are active mining claims nearby, up around the Fishhook area, lending additional credibility to gold still being a viable target in these parts. Aside from the mine, the parts leading up to the highlands of Hatcher Pass are among the most beautiful and stunning drives in the state, in addition to being a hot spot for blueberries.
