We began this morning at around 8 and drove north to Copperopolis (strange name huh?). The small town square reminded me of Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls, but if you can imagine, it was more perfect. There was even atmosphere music. There was a gazebo in the center, and shops, restaurants/cafes, it was beautiful. The town hall reminded me of the town hall from Back to the Future, and it is the only picture I took of the area.
A bit later, we got to Calaveras Big Trees. Now, you might have guessed that this park is famous for its big trees. So did I but when I got there, I discovered that it is not the trees that are big. I towered over the trees like a giant!
No I am just kidding. I did tower over these baby trees, but some other trees were huge!
On the way back we stopped for lunch at the Ironstone Vineyards. The food was wonderful, McKenna and I both for BLT's.
Here are some other things we saw, including a 44 pound hunk of gold!
If I got another opportunity, I'd love to join the seniors from church on another trip sometime =)
