Coloma, California

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.
