I love the California Gold Mine routes – all cross route 49. Silicon Valley has been the modern day version of The Gold Rush. and while I was in college my parents moved to Pleasanton, California.
You could say my life has revolved around Silicon Valley, and you’d be correct. Northern NJ – where I grew up had its share of extremely important technology – with Bell Labs creating UNIX and the C language. Everything in my career is based on those two technologies. In fact, I was 10 years old when work was underway on these technologies and living 45 minutes away from Bell Labs.
Getting back to the Gold Rush, the Murphy’s Hotel is one of many great historical landmarks in the Sierra Foothills. I’ve had so much fun hiking, backpacking and sight seeing in this gorgeous part of the world.
