Eleven Walkabouters traveled by van to Sacramento and California Gold Rush country in early April to ride along Route 49 and visit gold sites. The group learned about mining methods and spent a couple of days in Lake Tahoe, nearly getting snowed in. They escaped in their van by climbing the Donner Pass, only to find out that their newly purchased snow chains were too small, so new ones were purchased and installed on the spot. They toured Sutter’s Fort in Sacramento and Sutter’s Mill along the American River where gold was discovered. They took a train ride at Railtown in Jamestown, and ate twice at Mel’s Diner because it was so good. There were cocktail and pizza parties, and in Auburn the group posed for a picture mimicking a Native American on the hunt. On the last full day of the tour our group was scheduled to spend the day at Yosemite National Park, avoiding a landslide due to heavy snows this year. Our group spent an afternoon at Columbia State Park touring old mining-era buildings and some enjoyed a stagecoach ride. Travelers were: Dan Haslam (leader), Jim Miller (co-leader), Ginger Thaler, Bev Stebbins, Charlotte Sedgwick, Marianne Goldberg, Regina Bartolini, Margot and Walter Linback, and newbies Jimmy and Fariba Talebi.
