This was a day trip so we packed light.
The Crow Creek Mine is about a hour or so south of Anchorage near Girdwood.
The mine is a great place to spend the day.
Then you can head to the creek and strike it rich!
Well did we strike it rich? Um....lets just say we won't be quitting our day jobs.......
We did have a lot of fun trying.
You can check out the buildings and mining equipment at the mine. Most are from the 1890s.
Another great day in Alaska!
