THE GOLD RUSH IS ON IN BEAUTIFUL AMADOR COUNTY Leap Day 29 February 2016 Today I went for breakfast and got a bit sidetracked. Shortly after breakfast I decided to take a ride and found myself near the epicenter of last fall's Butte Fire. Deep within the Mokelumne River Canyon along Electra Road, and close to the town of Jackson, California.
National Hotel, Jackson California. Although it's boasting a facelift as of late, the National Hotel, built in 1852, still offers a Gold Rush-era vibe with restored Victorian furniture and a dark downstairs bar where you may feel compelled to get comfortable and order a whiskey.
