Chicago, Illinois Travel Guide - Must-See Attractions
Chicago is a city in the U.S. state of Illinois, and is the third most populous city in the United States, and the most populous city in the American Midwest. Chicago was incorporated as a city in 1837, near a portage between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed.
The most important places to visit in Chicago are: Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower, this iconic symbol of Chicago was the world's tallest building when it was built), Millennium Park (a great urban park, among the most famous landmarks of Chicago and a site for many major city events), Shedd Aquarium (one of the world's largest aquariums. It displays an impressive array of animals), Grant Park (called the front lawn of Chicago, the park is wonderfully landscaped and offers many sites for an urban escape), Navy Pier (situated right on Lake Michigan, the Pier has a festive atmosphere with entertainment, shops and restaurants) and many more.
If you want to save time and money, the most important Chicago travel tip is to compare prices before booking a hotel room or a flight. You can do this for free on a site that searches through hundreds of other travel websites in real time for the best travel deals available.

Sorry for some of the choppiness. I was literally chasing the sun around the tops of the buildings all day. It was a LOT of work to get this and so its not as bad as it could be I guess... ! You will notice at one point the camera gets put into the window... I did this cause I went out to eat dinner and didn't want it to get stolen. :)
Here in Barrow Alaska, the sun does not set for 84 days in the summer. Today is our summer solstice! It is a great celebration of light and liveliness!
This is a time-lapse video that was shot from 11am to 2 am. since it never sets, it makes for some loooooong days! :)
Wait.... have I slept yet.... ? :)
Hope someone out there likes it! ;) LOL

The Alaska Experience Preview
From The Alaska Experience Travel Guide : for stock footage and complete travel program availability
A land so vast, it defies the imagination
a wildness so profound it draws you back to
your place in nature
People that warm the heart,
And a heritage that spans
The breadth of human history.
alaska's every dimension stretches the imagination
from it 30,000 miles of convoluted coastline*
To it's countless unnamed peaks .
covering an area one fifth the size of
the continental united states,
alaska's rich geological heritage includes
17 of the 20 highest mts. In the united states,
half the world's glaciers, 3 million lakes,
and 3,000 meandering rivers.
Alaska is a land of surprises.
To many people alaska means snow,ice, and cold;
But to those that know her, alaska also means
Long summer days that produce some of the worlds
if you expect igloos,
you will discover russian churches
And european villages....
if you expect log cabins,
you will find high tech skyscrapers
And if you go to alaska expecting to observe nature,
You may discover how much a part of nature you are,
When you observe a grizzly bear
picking up your scent in the wild!
The unexpected seems to be the norm in alaska You may experience a sunset at noon.......
Or you may still be out fishing at midnight!
In some places the summer sun never hits the horizon
And in winter the northern lights can turn the sky
Into an eerie display of dancing illuminations (Northern Lights).
Alaska is a rare and fragile window into the natural world..... A world where every living thing lives in harmony with the
Powerful forces of nature. A world where the forces
of nature prevail
And man must be in tune. Or perish.
If you are fortunate enough to come to experience this
Wonderful place, try to experience it on its own terms.
Try to avoid imposing your day to day values on this
Unique and precious experience. Although the modern
Traveller can bring many creature comforts along
When he comes to today's alaska, everyone who visits
This raw and wild land finds himself roughing it
Just a little bit.........
for some that may mean sleepless frostbitten nights be on an icefield at the foot of mt. Mckinley.
for others it may mean a lukewarm shower, a dirt
road, or an evening without television..........
Part of the magic of alaska is that her most profound
Experiences may come when least expected.
the beaten path may offer many wonders,
but the moments that last forever ,
may sneak up on you like the chinook winds
And linger like an alaskan sunset
Historic Gold Mine & Mill Deep In The Forest – Part 1
This mine was once made up of several smaller claims and the earliest records I can find on those date back to 1867. However, by the turn of the last century (1900), these appear to have all been consolidated into the large operation seen in the video. Given the large number of adits and trenches, the number of collapsed structures (I only showed a small number of them in the video), the large stamp mill and the need for a cemetery, this was obviously a significant mining community during its heyday.
The guys I explored this site with are the Gold Country Explorers and credit goes to them for locating it. Gold Country Explorers find and post pictures of some really awesome places. You can find a link to their material here:
To see one of those monster Fairbanks-Morse stationary engines running (and it is worth seeing), check out the great video at the link below:
An early (1800s) California State Mining Bureau report had this to say about the mill at the site:
“A 20-stamp mill was located on the east side of the creek, with 900-pound stamps driven by a Knight wheel under 94’ of head from a 1,650’ long ditch; only one battery of stamps was reported as being in running order.”
A later report (1900s) adds these additional details about the mill:
“The mill at this time is described as possessing a 50-ton daily capacity, with a jaw crusher, 10 stamps, and ball mill in closed circuit with a Dorr classifier. Riffles were set below the stamps, and amalgamation plates below the ball mill. Three Fagergren flotation cells were followed by two Kraut cleaner-cells. A 200-hp diesel engine drove a generator to supply electric power, and a 440 cfm compressor was driven by a 100-hp motor.”
Now, you may notice a discrepancy here as the first description mentions twenty stamps and the second description mentions ten stamps. As you saw in the video, the ruins of the mill at the mine site now has ten stamps. So, does that mean that an earlier mill was torn down and replaced by a new mill? Possibly. However, in the picture in the video, which was taken in 1937, a flume can be clearly seen leading toward the mill. Presumably, it was still being used when the photograph was taken because it appears to be maintained and in good condition. So, perhaps the mill was remodeled or rehabbed and ten stamps were taken away? The first report mentions that only one battery was in working order…
In further support of this idea is the manufacturer’s stamp on the stamp mill itself. Union Iron Works of San Francisco ceased to be an independent company in 1902 when it was absorbed into a conglomerate called the United States Shipbuilding Company. This, therefore, dates the stamp mill to the time of the original report and would seem to suggest that it is the same mill.
The last records of work being done at this mine date to 1939.
You can perhaps better understand how everything is laid out at this abandoned gold mine by knowing that I did not backtrack or meander at all during the video, but continued in a steady downstream direction. So, the order in which objects of interest appear in the video are the order in which they are laid out across this sprawling site.
All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference…

Thanks for watching!
Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well.
These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born.
So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures!
