Auto Repair in College, AK by Simard Automotive Inc

The town of College, AK is located just minutes from Fairbanks. It shares much of her background, from her gold-rush roots and rustic landscape. The University of Alaska Fairbanks is the core of the town, where ongoing research seeks to explain and adapt to the far north, from engineering, to agriculture, to environmental studies. Permafrost geology is a unique study, which continues to this day in College, among many parts of Alaska.

One particularly interesting find near College, discovered by gold miners in 1979, is a mummified Alaska steppe bison, estimated to be around 30,000 years old. Known as “Blue Babe,” this is in reference to the blue-tinted vivianite that formed on his hide during his long sojourn in the Arctic permafrost. It also refers to Paul Bunyan’s big blue ox, Babe. Blue Babe is just one of the many interesting things to be found at College’s University of Alaska Museum of the North.
