Dazzling Colors in Independence Mine State Historical Park, Near Palmer, Alaska

There’s gold in them thar hills! I write this post as the end of my second day in Alaska draws to end. It’s been an amazing journey so far, a feast for the eyes as foliage is turning from green to hues of gold, orange and red. More images are to come but enjoy these snapshots from Independence Mine State Historical Park located north of Palmer and about 2 hours northeast of Anchorage. It’s the site of gold mining back in the early 1900s.

Enjoy!
