Carnegie Mansion (Dungeness) Ruins

On Cumberland Island, Georgia, are the ruins of the 19th century Thomas Carnegie mansion, Dungeness (Thomas was brother to Andrew Carnegie). It's amazing how nature has taken over the in such a short time. The wild horses are pretty neat to see, too.

Bring plenty of water (and a good watch!...if you miss the twice-a-day ferry, you're CAMPING!).
