More On Gold Rush Country, California

We had another full day in California Gold Rush Country. We stopped at a huge winery, Ironstone. Truthfully, we were more impressed with the grounds than the wine. The grounds are huge and, in addition to holding weddings and other catered events, there is also an open air amphitheater for concerts. We began to wonder if perhaps wine was now a secondary money maker to the concert and catering business held there.

As we continued our drive through Gold Rush Country, we stopped and strolled through small towns like Placerville, Auburn (where we spent the night) and Nevada City. We stopped at Sutter's Mill on Sutter's Creek where it all began.

And then back to San Francisco after a very full 3 days of scenic touring. One more full day in San Francisco, and then off to China.
