The gold was all gone from them thar hills 150 years ago, but some of the
miners' colorful old settlements are still around. Look for state highway
49 (get it?) on the map: that's the mining trail, and the towns along it
are the ones you want to see. Take your dramamine: them's twisty roads.
At least one major fantasy writer came from those parts: Clark Ashton Smith
lived most of his life in Auburn, the town where hwy 49 hits the main
freeway, I-80, out of Sacramento. There's a plaque in his honor, but I
don't know of anything else relating to him that one may visit.
