I went up to visit smokepaw in his home town of Placerville. I had never been there so I really didn't know what to expect. Buuuut upon further investigation...I'm totally sold on the place. Its GORGEOUS. And! Its within reasonable driving distance to Sacramento :D
First, a song to go with the photos as always
The Wallflowers - The Difference
A little brief (golden)nugget of info, Placerville used to be and is still commonly referred to as "Hangtown" due to the massive amounts of hangings that occurred there.
Also, one of its more notable residents is that jackass Thomas Kinkade. I KNOW WHERE HE LIVES NOW GUYS! >:D But overall, its an awesome western town with a lot of cool scenery and history.
I mean how perfect is that?
So without further ado, (ok are you ready for this? cuz I couldn't resist the opportunity)..
A bar built on the location of a hangman's tree, the stump is still in the basement apparently.
The view from smokepaw's livingroom window. He lives on a street called "Great View". They weren't kidding :P
This is how a man cooks dinner. HOO-RAH!
This is in Columbia. This is about as cliche as it gets I think. Looks like a gunfights gonna erupt any minute :P
I think this is somewhere by Sonora although I don't remember what it was called. Smokey? Where was this again?
I'm pretty sure this was in Sonora..because I remember having delicious delicious BBQ soon after this picture was taken *drooooool*
