Columbia

Restored to its gold rush splendor, Columbia is a favorite destination of many local pilots. Working gold mines, weekend events and historic shops and restaurants provide entertainment and history for the entire family. The gorge photographed below is just north of town, outside the gold mine's fourth level - recently opened. Various communities take part in the annual muster, a competition of local firefighting teams. Demonstrations include historic and modern firefighting equipment.
