From the bloggers at RV Wheel Life:
We’ve traveled on 820 ‘scenic byway’ miles the past few days … in Jimmy’s words, we have “trundled through ancient Redwoods … pastoral wine-producing country … and climbed Hwy. 49 through the California Sierra Nevada foothills that sparked a rich history based on the quest for gold.”
It seems each of those two-lane stretches has been more ‘interesting’ to traverse than the one before. I truly hope we will not soon top the likes of the barrier-less, breath-holding ‘Forty-Niner Highway.’
Named after the ’49ers,’ the waves of immigrants who swept into the area looking for gold, this narrow roadway passes through many historic mining communities of the 1849 California gold rush.
