The Jualpa Mining Camp, also known as the Last Chance Basin Camp, is a former gold mining camp, just outside the city of Juneau, Alaska. Its main building is now operated as the Last Chance Mining Museum by the Gastineau Historical Society. The camp was located on the southern banks of Gold Creek, about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Juneau, near what is now the end of Basin Road. The camp was the site of one of the largest gold finds in the Juneau mining district. It was established between 1910 and 1913 by the Alaska-Juneau Gold Mining Company and operated until 1944, producing more than $80 million worth of gold. The largest surviving structure of the camp is its air compressor building, which was 84 feet (26 m) long, and still houses the compressor used by the company. Also surviving are a variety of railroad-related resources, which the company used to bring or to its mill on the Gastineau channel, an electrical transformer house, powder magazine, and cable hoist.
Hiking to Nugget falls and Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau Alaska. Its just a short 10 to 20 minute walk on the trail to a view of a lifetime. The power of the falls is amazing.

More information about the video content bellow:
1. The first European vessel to reach Alaska is generally held to be the St. Gabriel under the authority of the surveyor M. S. Gvozdev and assistant navigator I. Fyodorov on August 21, 1732, during an expedition of Siberian cossak A. F. Shestakov and Belorussian explorer Dmitry Pavlutsky (1729–1735).
2. The name “Alaska” (Russian: Аляска, tr. Alyaska) was introduced in the Russian colonial period when it was used to refer to the peninsula. It was derived from an Aleut, or Unangam idiom, which figuratively refers to the mainland of Alaska. Literally, it means object to which the action of the sea is directed.
3. The Russians never fully colonized Alaska, and the colony was never very profitable. Evidence of Russian settlement in names and churches survive throughout southeast Alaska. William H. Seward, the United States Secretary of State, negotiated the Alaska Purchase. In 1867 United States Secretary of State William H. Seward offered Russia $7,200,000, or two cents per acre, for Alaska.
4. In 1942 Japan invaded the Aleutian Islands, which started the One Thousand Mile War, the first battle fought on American soil since the Civil War. During World War II, the Aleutian Islands Campaign focused on the three outer Aleutian Islands that were invaded by Japanese troops and occupied between June 1942 and August 1943. During the occupation, one Alaskan civilian was killed by Japanese troops and nearly fifty were interned in Japan, where about half of them died.
5. Alaska is the United States’ largest state and is over twice the size of Texas. Measuring from north to south the state is approximately 2250 km long and measuring from east to west it is 4350 km wide. Alaska is a geographical marvel. When a scale map of Alaska is superimposed on a map of the 48 lower states, Alaska extends from coast to coast. Nearly one-third of Alaska lies within the Arctic Circle.
6. The City and Borough of Juneau is the capital city of Alaska. It is a unified municipality located on the Gastineau Channel in the Alaskan panhandle, and it is the second largest city in the United States by area. Juneau has been the capital of Alaska since 1906, when the government of what was then the District of Alaska was moved from Sitka. It needs to be said that Anchorage is the largest city, nearly 10 times larger than Juneau.
7. Alaska has some of the greatest landscapes on Earth. It is covered by forests, mountains, 3 million lakes, volcanoes, and about half of all the glaciers in the world. Its wildlife is abundant: brown bears, black bears, polar bears, bisons, moose, whales, bald eagles and many more species all inhabit the area.

Sitka , Alaska .One of the highlights of an Alaska Cruise , Sitka once the capital of Russian America and formerly known as New Archangel while under Russian Rule.
Sitka Alaska was initially settled by the Tlingit Indians.
The Kiksadi Clan of the Tlingit Indians chose what is now called Baranof Island as their home, establishing a community at what is present-day Sitka. The Tlingits lived undisturbed until 1799, when Russian explorers arrived in Alaska and Alexander Baranof, Manager of the Russian-American Company, built a fort a few miles to the north. After a series of clashes, the Tlingits attacked and destroyed the Russian outpost in 1802. But Baranof retaliated and soon pushed the natives from the area. The Russians renamed the settlement New Archangel. The Russian Orthodox Church spread its influence into the area and built fortress-like structures on a hilltop overlooking the shoreline.
Rich wildlife resources in Alaska allowed the Russian-American Company to flourish – for a time it was the most profitable fur trader in the world. .
In 1867, the United States purchased Alaska from the Russians for $7.2 million. The transfer ceremony occurred in Sitka Alaska . Today, the Sitka culture is a blend of Tlingit, Russian and American. Certainly a unexpected benefit of Alaska Cruises, and no of Alaska Cruise Holiday for Dummies.

This brief video shows the historic riverfront shops in Juneau, Alaska. One of the buildings on the riverfront is actually an old brothel that can be toured. The shops along this riverfront are all suspended on piers which makes the experience kind of fun. If you are coming to Juneau then I’d recommend stopping by this unique, historic shopping district. If you like this video then make sure to give it a thumbs up!
