Road Trip to the California Gold Country

Dave and I did a weekend road trip all through the Gold Country. It was amazing to see so many 150-year-old remnants of the gold rush. (We saw lots of other things as well!) Here are some of the photos...

------------>A closed down nuclear plant. You can almost drive right up to it.

We didn't have any really memorable food, but I did find this pig-shaped bun.


  1. Love the photos...what cool places! I would say that pig shaped but should be pretty memorable...ha...too cute!

  2. Nice photos! You guys are always going to such neat places!

  3. You seem like somebody who would enjoy Sweet Betsy from Pike, a historical novel of the California gold rush, by Sam Sackett.

  4. Great Photos Michele, hope you had a good time.

  5. What a fun road trip, Michele. And a pig bun, to boot! Hope you and D have a fabulous Thanksgiving!

  6. What is Burt Reynolds doing there!
    Is he in someones yard?
    The town looks great...a sort of chinese wild west.
