Today we celebrated my husband's and also the town of Columbia, CA's birthdays. Columbia is 160 years old today, established just as the Gold Rush was beginning in 1850. Columbia is now a State Park - just search it or follow this link - http://www.columbiacalifornia.com/
It is a great place to visit with lots of history and is a real gold rush town. A lot of movies and TV shows have used it for filming, including High Noon with Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly.
