Independence Mine, Alaska

Getting back on track with the blog posts about our big Alaska - Canada Roadtrip July 2015.  We traveled 8000 miles in 30 days.  The trip to Independence Mine is a bit of an adventure....steep gravel road and it is most interesting.  The mine has been taken over by the state as a State Park.  What they have done is unusual.  Rather than preserve or restore the mine - things have been left in the state of decay, with trails all around to see the entire place.  We had a chilly gloomy day for our visit.  Not many others visiting that day.
