Last Saturday we took a trip to Sonora, which is about 70 miles from Galt, to pick up a sailboat mast that Doug had bought on ebay.
Sonora, a gold rush town, is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It was a scenic drive, and we went through two other old gold rush towns called San Andreas and Angels Camp before reaching Sonora.
There was a spring festival going on in Sonora but unfortunately we were not able to stop because there wasn't enough time. On the way back the festival was still on but we still couldn't stop because we had the 25 foot long mast mounted on our truck and it was difficult to find a spot to park the truck!
However, we did stop in San Andreas for a late lunch, and there was plenty of space in the car park for our truck with the sailboat mast.
