People from all over the world enjoy spending their time traveling to different remote spots, and while most people head to private islands or hidden cave systems, others head to an entirely different type of atmosphere. Despite the fact that Alaska is the biggest state, there are very few people who live there compared to the amount of space available. In fact, one town only has 200 people in, and you'll never guess how they choose to live!
As most of you already know, Alaska is known as the last unexplored American frontier. Considering that most of the state’s population lives along the southeastern coast, many people are curious as to what lies outside of its boundaries. It's in our nature to be curious, after all.
Thanks to people’s innate curiosity, the remote communities of Alaska have been getting quite a bit attention in recent years. Many people have even taken an interest in trying to survive the extreme Alaskan Bush. Luckily, as long as they’re prepared for the journey, adventurers only need to look just a few miles south of Anchorage for a unique experience.
Flashing Traffic Lights
Once you've driven about 60 miles south of Anchorage, you'll come up to a string of flashing yellow lights. The road that you'll be taking from there only allows one-way traffic through, so there's an extremely good chance that you could wait up to an hour to be let through. It may be a long wait, but it's definitely worth it!
Follow The Road
As soon as you're allowed through the light, you'll continue to follow the road until you come upon a dark tunnel. Keep in mind, the tunnel may look a little scary, especially with the train tracks going through it, but this is literally the only way into the town. Unless you want to hike through the frigid temperatures, of course.
2.5 Mile Tunnel
Reddit user HyruleanHero1988 was one of those people who couldn't control his curiosity. In fact, he was curious enough to actually pay a visit to the small community, so he took a vacation there with his girlfriend and they documented their entire journey. "The 2.5-mile tunnel that you have to pass through to enter the town is one lane only — they switch the direction of travel every 30 minutes. You have to wait at these lights until they let you go," said Reddit user HyruleanHero1988.
