An old 49er gold mining camp which is still being mined today, located at Clinton Bar in the Mokelumne River Canyon, Pine Grove, Ca.

One traveler who came this way wrote of looking into the canyon in the Volcano Ledger (Newspaper) in 1855, "the most beautiful landscape ever witnessed was there spread out to our enraptured view. Who could look upon that scene and not be reminded of Nature's God?"
