To Crow Creek Mine

I went to Crow Creek Mine on Saturday for a presentation, but I got there early enough to do some photography first. It was first started in 1896, and it sure looks it. There's antiques all around for sure.

At one time it was the largest producing hydraulic placer mine in South Central Alaska. Now it's the largest recreational gold mining area.

There's area's to camp, clean facilities and a very friendly staff. They have a lot of displays of the equipment and vehicles used in the past.

I'm not sure I would want to use this hydraulic jack hammer all day.
How many of you have a shop that looks like this?
I would have liked to stay longer, but that gives me a reason to go back.

Happy dog, Happy girl

My friend Britt lost her best friend Adak over a month ago and has been lost ever since. She tried a young husky mix that didn't like her cats and it didn't work out. That made her even sadder.

The local SPCA saved Cooper from the pound. He had a broken leg and wasn't being adopted. His time left there wasn't long. When they got Cooper back to their center, they thought of Britt. It's a perfect match. The SPCA is helping to get his leg fixed, and Britt is spoiling him.Thats' a good thing.

Cooper is happy and so is Britt because, I can tell by her smile.
