2016 Epic Road Trip - Day 69

Day 69 

July 21, 2016

Anchorage area

The wildfire south of Anchorage 5 days after we first saw it.  Today as we passed by, we saw lots of firemen and equipment/vehicles used in fighting the fire.
We visited the Indian Valley Mine, site of an historic gold mine from the early 1900s.  It is now privately owned property, but is registered as a National Historic Site.  They offer tours of the original log cabins and gold panning.

A glimpse of the Shaft # 2 entrance to the mine.
The view across Cook Inlet south of Anchorage.
