Gold and Green




We went hiking today up to an old mining camp near Mohawk Lakes – about 11,500 feet above sea level. We were looking, but didn’t spot any stray gold nuggets on the path. However, the scenery was fabulous, and the lush greens a prophylactic tonic for the dry SoCal desert we’ll be heading home to in a couple days.

Nice picture - I notice that all the kids have backpacs and non of the parents do - now we know who does the heavy lifting!

Jaa -- well, some of us do such heavy lifting we set down our packs when it's time to take a picture. :)

Hi: I was looking for information on Australian gold nuggets and can upon your site. I'm working on a site about Gold nuggets and looking for any good facts that I might be able to incorporate into my site to really provide an in-depth information source. After reading your Blog, I found it interesting, but, it wasn't what I was looking for. With that said, I must say I've enjoyed reading it. I bookmarked your blog for the future. Well I'm off again in search for Australian gold nuggets info.
