This Fascinating Tunnel In Alaska Has Literally Frozen Time And You’ll Want To Visit

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Permafrost Tunnel is a fascinating place. Located in Fox, Alaska, the tunnel was constructed in the 1960’s to study permafrost, or permanently frozen ground. Due to the long months of freezing temperatures in Interior Alaska, in some places the ground stays frozen… forever. This leads to a unique environment where the past is literally frozen in time. Explore the Permafrost Tunnel to learn about the Alaska of long ago. In the tunnel, you can see remains of animals and plant life from different eras dating as far back as 33,000 years! This tour is an incredible adventure you will never forget, walking into the Earth to see the past frozen in time.
