Yuba River and Highway 49

Among the cedars along the North Fork of the Yuba River – down through Nevada City and eventually to Placerville – the road here bakes in the late Summer sun. We keep a steady elevation of about 4000 feet. The burritos are pretty good at that little restaurant in Downieville. In Georgetown you can find a great cocktail at that that really old hotel and saloon, the firefighter bartender pours ’em stiff. It is tough to find good stuff in Nevada City that isn’t too touristy although that store Kitkitdizee is pretty sweet.
