Calaveras

Last week, I helped chaperone my daughter's field trip to SOS (Sierra Outdoor School) which included visits to Calaveras Big Trees and Mercer Caverns.  This is a beautiful area of California.  The school is located in the Stanislaus National Forest about 100 miles southeast of Sacramento, California.

The modern history in the area revolves around the California Gold Rush.  My daughter's class was there to explore nature and science.  Let's just put it this way, the history of the Gold Rush is quite overshadowed (literally) by the age and size of those Giant Sequoias at Calaveras Big Trees in Arnold, CA.

What a wonderful experience!  This is one of the things that has kept me from my blog recently.  I hope to get back to my family tree research soon.  For now, check out these trees.
