May be Rough, but certainly not Ready

Wanting to go explore some place new, my friend and I headed to the Gold Country.1608_06_RoughReady_3690

Arriving at 9:00 a.m. I see many photo opportunities to get my camera clicking. This is represents a mining town in 1850. This town left the union in 1850 for a short time, and rejoined so that 4th of July celebrations could continue.

House with many old signs. Not sure what its purpose is now. Antiques?


Place to go for what ails you


Some humor from the creators


Pay attention to the toll charges.

Historic markers and gold mining scenes contrasts with all the No Trespassing and No Parking signs. I wonder what is going on.

Visiting on Saturday it was strange to see all the “No Trespassing” and “No Parking” signs and no people in town. The country store was closed up, and for lease.

The town appeared to be a ghost town in the making.


Good bye Rough and Ready

No reason to hang around so we head to Grass Valley in search of some lunch. Next post from Grass Valley.
