Last Thursday my husband and I took an hour drive and went to Apple Hill in Camino California, this is off HWY 50, on the way to Lake Tahoe. Want to learn more about Northern California's popular Apple Hill? click here. We've been many times before. It's a very pretty spot in the mountains just past Placerville, California where a lot of apple growers live and sell their apples and wares.
Out Door Wednesday is hosted by Susan at A Southern Day Dreamer. Thanks Susan for hosting this fun event.
It was fun to see all the shiny delicious apples, and scenery. We had a nice day and brought our two pups with us, Edie pronounced E-DEE and Effie, they are both girls. We, okay I dressed them up in a cute Halloween Collar with bells.

Sutter's Mill, James W. Marshall discovered gold in 1848 on the South Fork of the American River in the valley the Nisenan Indians knew as Cullumah.

Visitors have the opportunity to try panning for gold in the American River and enjoy hikes and picnics under the riparian oak woodlands. Overlooking the beautiful river canyon, where the gold discoverer rests today, see California's first historic monument, the statue of James Marshall pointing at his gold discovery site .
