We went for a little drive last weekend to check out a nearby area we hadn’t explored before. Between Foresthill, California and Colfax, California is a small un-maintained Placer County Road called Yankee Jims Road. (Turns out Yankee Jim was a hellraiser, bandit, gold minor, horse thief, and all around bandit. Why not name a town and road after him?)
Expecting to just see a road I had never driven on before I was pleasantly surprised with multiple flowing waterfalls, a pretty fun 4×4 trail, and a ton of lovely wildflowers.
I continue to be surprised by things in my own Northern California backyard.
When was the last time you explored a road you had never driven on just because?
