California: Exploring Gold Country Part 2 – Nevada City & Yuba River Edition

My boyfriend, Robbie, is a manager/bartender over at Southern Pacific Brewing Company in San Francisco and I’m an Instructional Designer at UC Berkeley. With opposite schedules, I guess it’s needless to say, we rarely get time off together. Trying to save money for a proper Bahamian vacation this fall, but still craving some adventure and private time, last July we rented a car and took a week to explore Nevada City, the Yuba River and surrounding area.

For those that don’t know, Nevada City is in Nevada County, California. It was first settled in 1849 during the California Gold Rush. It looks its age: in a good way. The mix of Victorian homes, miner’s cabins & old storefronts nestled in the tall pines of the Sierra Foothills is rad.

Nearby is the Yuba River and well, I’m not even going to attempt to describe the Yuba. Words could never do it justice. It is one of my favorite places in the world. My photos don’t do it justice either, but here are a few of them from a hike we took at Edward’s Crossing on my birthday.
