August 8 - Golden Times
Out to Coloma -- first stop the
John...sorry!...James Marshall Monument, with the accidental prospector pointing downslope to
the gold discovery site (north -- to the left -- of the store at bottom center),
then down the trail
to the Visitor's
over to the Mill replica
on the edge of the South Fork American River
and downstream, discovering the actual find locale.
Beyond, we steer north towards
Pilot Hill and Cool
then into Auburn Ravine, near the Confluence of the North and Middle Forks of the American, below the tallest-in-California/third-tallest-in-the-U.S. Foresthill Bridge.
Late lunch in
valleywise, where Harriet (after the first Solidarity rehearsal) joins us for more merriment, before retiring to a couple more pages of orchestration re Job: VII. Empty Words.
