My folks live up in the heart of gold country. In fact, there were several claims / mining operations on their farm in the1850’s; rock creek had 1000’s of dollars of gold removed. The land and streams were reshaped by huge mounds of dirt shifted to remove gold. Part of their driveway includes this old fence. While probably not 150 years old, some of the wood pieces could be that old. The barns is certainly at least 150 years old, there are pictures showing it from the early photographs of the ice operations done after gold mining was done.
Yesterday was a cold beautiful day. The sun was shining and mist came up from the melting ice. I was able to get several wonderful pictures of the fence along their road. It’s interesting how different everything looks from the opposite directions.
