Hatcher Pass, Alaska, pastel Bohoy

"There's gold in them thar hills." 
Hatcher Pass, Alaska. Through the rolling hills and roiling mist a shrouded vestige of the past appears. Peaks of red that sheltered the miners of the Alaska Pacific Mining Company dot the velvety green pass. Ghostly mists and fog and clouds hover above, all secretly holding the stories of the men seeking their fortunes that came to a halt during WWII. Eerily beautiful.
