Leaving Glennallen ushered by aspen and clouds
The area around Glennallen, AK had miners arrive around 1890 seeking copper claims. Kennecott Copper Mine became the largest operation with four mines which came into production around 1901. We came across one of the cabins that was built by prospectors seeking their fortune in copper.
The hills along Highway 1 and Highway 2, Alaska were covered in the yellow colors of aspen. The colors covered a broad range from light yellow to light red.
We not only had the beautiful colors from the aspen, but the cloud formations were dramatic.
