10 on 10 April

April again! with its wonder of gladness,

April with its haunting joy, and swift-stinging tears,-

Month of mist and music, and the old moon-madness,

Month of magic fluting, the spirit only hears,-

'April again!' 

Many of the old buildings of this gold mining town have been restored and offer a wonderful look into the past.

Panning for gold!  
Her biggest piece!
This one struck it rich! 
The roof of the blacksmith's shop.
The barn.
