Hatcher's Pass

Kelly (my friend who brought me to Victory Bible Camps) was the staff counselor.  Part of her job was to plan activities for the weekends. 

 One weekend we went to Hatcher's Pass.  Hatcher's Pass is a mountain pass through the southwest part of the Talkeetna Mountains.  It is named after Robert Hatcher, a prospector and miner.

This animal was making very frightening screeching noises.

Taken from inside one of the buildings.

Some remnants of the mine.

One of the buildings left from when the mine was open.

Another mining building.
KaM Time!!

Remnants of a building.
The beautiful Kelly by her smiley face.

That would be MuddChopps (Alpine counselor)  in the background, Aaron (the program director) pushing Kroc (AV team) in his wheelchair.  This picture just captures all of their silliness.

"I'm touching it..."

Right behind my head is Palmer/Wasilla.  The buildings to the left are the remaining buildings from the mine.
