I visited a place I've been fascinated with for most of my life, Sutter's Mill. I remember reading a book while in the 3rd or 4th grades about John Marshall's discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848. It was a great book, and I've wanted to visit the mill site ever since. Today, the place is a California state park. The mill, destroyed by a flood in 1862, has been reconstructed.
