Columbia

We took a weekend trip to Columbia, California. More specifically, to the Columbia State Historic Park, which is a restoration of a Gold Rush era town.


Sarsaparilla was sold everywhere. I trust sarsaparilla was popular during the 1850s. The "wonderful wines, micro brews, marinated tri-tip" and "ATM" probably were less common in Columbia during the Gold Rush.


This out house was nailed shut. That's ok, we weren't planning on using it.


The old fire station. (We also visited the actual fire station, which was a few blocks away.)


The back room at the Columbia museum.


Carriages.


The blacksmith—the fire in the forge made everything smokey.


Mitch considers a saloon.
