Northern Trip

On a recent weekend trip, Sam and I drove further north, winding our way through little town after little town and ended up staying overnight in Shasta, California. We found some amazing pioneer cemeteries, peacefully nestled in the pines and redwoods, silent witness to our California heritage. They are a small slice of history, a memorial to the people who came to California during the gold rush. There are no clear obvious markers for the native peoples who were here before time and the Californiano’s who came next, but these monuments mark this time, this change, and in that way tell a silent story.
