During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. Visit the ghost at Moocher's Bar, Nenana.
2. Check out the Pedro Dredge in Chicken.
The tiny mining town of Chicken, far to the east-northeast in Alaska, is a fascinating place to visit. Everything about this place brings to mind the Gold Rush era, including all the mining equipment that decorates the landscape. The small group of residents keep the Alaskan spirit and gold mining traditions alive. The abandoned mining gear rusting into the mud can be super creepy when the town is quiet and empty in the winter.
