Independence Mine

Until the gates open (I'm not sure exactly when that happens, June?) you have to park in a lower parking lot and walk up to the mine. It's a fairly long walk especially in deep snow so be prepared (the top photo was taken from the parking lot and you can see the mine in the distance). The Hatcher Pass area in our experience usually has snow well past the time it's melted everywhere else. As long as you bring proper shoes (we didn't) and an extra jacket (we did) you'll be fine. The pathways around the mine aren't plowed or shoveled so it's kind of wander at your own risk.
