I am celebrating my spring break from teaching with some down time! We took a short, 45-minute drive to the Gold Country in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas.
Northern Californians know where I am talking about, as popular must-see’s along the scenic, historic drive of Highway 49 include Sutter Creek, Daffodil Hill, Jackson Rancheria Casino, and quaint, California Gold Rush towns.
Early Spring was in full swing with plenty of blooms, abundant greens and of course, tourists!
As we strolled through Sutter Creek’s main street, my camera worked overtime capturing historic architecture, doors (for Norm’s Thursday Doors), flowers and other interesting things.
I was surprised how much the color green is used on many of the doors and facades, whether residential or business. This is linked to the weekly photo challenge It IS Easy Being Green!.
