Hello everybody! Today we are hiking our way through a walking trail that winds through a scenic forest and passes through the ruins of the Pine Mountain gold mining station.
This site is a gold mine of information. It was commercially mined for gold off and on for over 100 years, making it one of the longest running mining operations in Georgia.
These explorers are ready to go! They are in search of a pot of gold.
It's a beautiful day for a hike! All that glitters is not gold.
We are starting at the Stockmar Stage.
Stockmar home site (ruins).
We are walking along what was once a fully functional 1858 gold stamp mill. This was the man-way tunnel (south).
He has a heart of gold!
They are looking for gold in all the right places! ;o)
Syd is on site at the Stockmar Mine Office. She is worth her weight in gold!
It's time to hike some of the trails. There's gold in them there hills!
Ore stacking bins site.
We aren't looking for fools gold! Now get out of there and let's go!
This is the man-way tunnel (north).
The temptation to run through the tunnel to the south end is very strong! The warning sign says NO, so NO it is.
She's a gold digger! :o) She better not be!
He's sitting on a goldmine! Stamp Mill Foundations (ruins)
Animal Exhibits and Petting Zoo Area - we walked over to see the goats.
Is this the GOAT that laid the golden egg?
This day was as good as gold!
