The South Yuba River is a wild river, unencumbered by locks, dams or resevoirs and left in its natural state, which is unusual in California. We drove over the South Yuba River on our way to the Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park north of Nevada City in the foothills of Sacramento. This is a place that has been on our list for a long time to visit. It has historical significance to California in many ways, one of which resulted in the first California environmental law.
You can read more about the hydraulic gold mining site, its ghost towns and the hiking trail to the cliff-face, and see the photographs, including an amazing panoramic view starring yours truly as bookends, in my personal blog today at this link: A Sunday Afternoon at Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park.
