PHOTO ESSAY: Outtakes from the Gold Rush



Here are some photos that didn't make the cut on this week and last week's articles. Not because they're bad pics but just because they didn't fit the narrative for some reason.  Still, they give you some insight into other things that were going on during this trip.  Above, the Restful Nest B&B in Mariposa really has modern plumbing...this outhouse hides one of their water wells.




A Woody club joins us on the freeway on our way across the Grapevine.




This guy doesn't belong there...it's really a VW beetle made up to look like a Woody. Imposter!




Our state flower is starting to paint the hillsides.




Hummingbirds gather at the feeder at The Restful Nest.




The pond at Butterfly Creek Winery, just east of Mariposa.




Goldfinches on the thistle sock at The Restful Nest.




Graves in Hornitos.




Daffodils at The Restful Nest.




And, finally, I found this little plant while hiking near The Restful Nest. Lois told me what it was but I forgot. Anyone know?

  2. Thanks, Christina. The beetle was part of a Woody club going over the pass. I guess the owner really wanted it to be one. ;)
