I took this picture from the roof of Matt's apartment bldg.
If you squint, you can see the Hollywood sign!
I know this is a succulent of some kind,
but I've never seen flowers like this! @ Tongva Park.
My two favorite guys at Tongva Park.
Long winter shadows on a lengthy afternoon Canal trail walk in Nevada City,
a few days after we returned home.
The actual site! We were here!
Sutter's Mill site.
Near the end of our loop trail were Nisenan Maidu bark structure replicas.
A Nisenan village stood here for thousands of years.
Chaw-se (grinding rock) was a key part of Nisenan village life. Based on the number of deep holes pounded into it, this chaw-se was used for hundreds, if not thousands, of years to grind acorns.
Nearby were two stone structures built in 1858-59. One building - Wah Hop Store and Bank - was leased to Wah Hop in 1860, and served the sizable Chinese community for many years.
