Hold on just a sec.
Is that behind Water STreet in Jackson? That's where my husband's Gramps had his blacksmith shop in the thirties all the way into the seventies. Wait til i show him!
if i'm right, that is

That's a cool pic.

I drove thru the Sierra Nevadas with an 18-wheeler once. I was going too fast and nearly set my brakes on fire just trying to slow down a bit. I was scared to death! The scenery was gorgeous, and I love traveling all over the country. But I'm glad to be home every night now.

Connie, thats it alright. My husband tells me gramps opened his shop in the teens. Repaired mining equipment, wheels, plows, and the tailing wheels for mining, shoed lots of horses. He was there unitl the early seventies, lived to be 96 So he had the shop up and running for over sixty years. Kim remembers visiting it as a little boy, the way it smelled of metal shavings how hot it was in there!

Aren't we lucky to live in such a beautiful place? Everything is greening up so nicely. Last spring we drove over to stay at the Sutter Creek Inn (our favorite place to stay)and the wild flowers were putting on the best show I'd seen in years. Perhaps we just happen to hit it at the right time. Beautiful photo. Thanks.

Geeez, I love your photos. I always did love the mother lode country. I didn't think I had any reason to EVER return to Calif but our re-connection has pushed all my nostalgia buttons. I want to come visit and, after we've run out of things to talk about (will that ever happen?), have you take me on a loooong sight-seeing tour. Wish I could come when Daffodil Hill is in bloom, but . . .
Maybe you'll post a photo instead. Hugs ~Dawn

It is nice to go back in time, when time was slow. Family meant security. Church meant something.

Wish we had those times now.
