Beverly Hills Hotel
Beverly Hills, California
This famous hotel is located at Beverly Drive and Sunset Boulevard, and enjoys a lush green 16-acre setting, across from a park. This Pink Palace, set back from a busy intersection, looks like a stage setting and has been used in films many times.
Coloma is where James Marshall discovered gold at Sutter’s Sawmill in 1948, which set the California gold rush in motion. Pictured here is the 150th anniversary of the discovery of gold, children panning for gold, a gold nugget and The James Marshall Monument
My nephews sent this to me on their way to pan for gold themselves. They did get some flakes.
