Stunning Foothills

I love scenery Of Sierra Nevada Foothills. Hills and ridges covered with woods and snow (sometimes), stunning vistas, old towns, farms and herds of cows and ships, what could be more relaxing?11.28. Highway 20 Vista Point
There are three new places we found during the latest trip.
First – Omega Diggings Overlook on the State Highway 20.
One mile from this location were towns ​of Alpha and Omega. The only what remain about them are signs of hydraulic diggings​ of earliest 1850’s.
