Discover Gold, Red, and Orange in Placerville

Autumn is the time of year when the skies are bright blue, the air is crisp, and anything seems possible. Take a few little day trips to discover gold, red, and orange in unexpected places.


You thought we were talking about mining for gold and making wedding rings, didn’t you? Nope, gold is all around you in Autumn. Take a drive on Highway 50 to El Dorado National Forest for leaf-peeping season to discover gold leaves on all the trees. Fish for golden shiners at Ice House Reservoir and bask in the golden sunshine sent from Heaven.
