Views From Bugge's Hill
Many photos have been taken over the years since 1935 from atop Bugge's Hill, looking east across John Bugge's homestead to Palmer and the mountains beyond. This gallery draws together some of these photos from various collections, allowing viewers to compare images captured over the years and to better understand how the community and it's landscape have evolved. One may find it revealing to visit Bugge's Hill to compare these old images with that same view today.
