GALLERIES:: California's Mother Lode - May, 2008

California's Gold Country - or Mother Lode - is steeped in history. The discovery of gold in the 1840's brought thousands if not millions of people to the state. Today it a beautiful area in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It's history is very much in the fabric of the area, but it is also a region of the present. These images were made during two trips in 2008.
