A New Look for Sutter St.

Sutter Street is wearing a new look these days since the median was removed. It's definitely more open now, and plans are underway for further refinements including new larger sidewalks.

Chinese Diggings

With the future of the Chinese Diggings site in question I figured it to be a good time to check out this interesting piece of history.

The Diggings are a series of maze like trenches resulting from ground sluice mining operations. This is one of many entry points into the trench system which can become quite deep at some points.

The mining operations were believed to have been active during the 1890's and early 1900. Since the entire area is essentially ancient river bed, one can see river cobble far below ground.

Although called Chinese Diggings, there is no record of who actually did the digging. The environment in the depths of the trench is markedly different from the surface. Cool and damp it sustains different types of plant life than the Oak trees and abundant Poison Oak found above.

In some spots, the trench reaches depths of 20 to 30 feet.


The way out

The Chinese Diggings is flanked by Hwy 50.

Mormon Island Dam Strengthening

I was out for a late afternoon walk at Mormon Island Dam. I've heard that they've been doing some work to raise and strengthen the dam, but was surprised at the scale of the effort.

They're busy moving mountains. All this dirt has been brought in from the spillway project near Folsom Dam.

Green Valley Road below the dam.

Cool at the Pool

Lembi Aquatic Center....
You know its cold outside when the warm pool water condenses into the cold dry night air.

Frosty Morning

With the storm past and clear skies above, it made for some near record cold temperatures this morning. Everything was covered in a layer of frost as the Sun rose on Catlin Park.
