Gold Rush Days

We live in an area shaped in history by the California gold rush.  There are reminders of it all around.  On Labor Day, there was a festival celebrating that time in Old Town Sac.  The kids and I went and had a lot of fun.
Recognize this old miner?

Downtown Sacramento.  Right between their heads is the state capitol building.
