I pulled over, turned the kids loose on the playground and walked up to see what it was all about. This was the site of the Utica Mine in Angels Camp, a town made famous by Mark Twain in the The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.
Except for a large plaque next to this decaying machinery, the Utica Park seemingly does little to celebrate the mines influence over the region.
