For years I had read about the 1895 Dawn Gold Mine in the San Gabriel Mountains, but was unable to visit because of a forest fire, The Station Fire, in  2009.  After the fire the US Forest Service closed the area for safety and reforestation.  Once the area opened back up, naturally it took me a while to know about it, but once I did I hauled my cookies on up there to check it out.  Boy was it worth the difficult trek!  Watch the video and see the journey and the mine for yourself.
