How do you begin to tell a story that's lasted longer than you have?
I'll start with Hatcher Pass. It wasn't the first but it was the best. If we had gotten to spend more time there it would probably rank as one of my favorite places ever. Right up there with Cumberland Island and the nearby cemetary in St Marys. Unfortunately it was raining, we didn't pay the fee, and Matt and Ellie waited in the car while Megan and I scrambled to take pictures.
Independence Mine is a crumbling gold mine located at Hatchers Pass. Gold was first found in 1906 at the site by Robert Lee Hatcher and the mine was active until 1951. The site is now a state historical park.
