Yosemite Or Bust






Our first night in the Jucy, we stayed at a campground called the 49ers. They were so friendly!  When we checked in, they pointed us toward the brat dinner.  No set cost, just a donation.  One gal said they've saved many a marriage with their Friday night cookout.  Later, a cowboy named Cricket entertained folks around the campfire with songs and stories. Everyone loved his original songs.  

The next morning, we walked next door to Columbia State Park. They have a gold mining town replica, and many costumed interpreters. We decide to ride the stage coach, and got robbed!!!  The pulled chicken BBQ and sasperillas were wonderful at the country restaurant, and we bought 5 hard candy sticks for a dollar at their grocery store. The blacksmith and tack shops are a must see, as well as the candle shop where the kids dipped candles for Father's Day. 

Jamestown was our last stop before heading to Yosemite. We missed the last train ride of the day, but saw the famous #3 steam engine ride the roundhouse and be put away for the evening.  This train has been in countless movies and TV shows over the years, and is still being used in films.  The guys really likes looking around at all of the equipment.
