    South Yuba Canal Building and Ott's Assay Office

    Favorite thing: Hannover, 23rd of March: I just received very bad news from my friend Lotte who told me that there was a fire in downtown Nevada City. The old theatre and two other store were lost to the fire. I hope they rebuild everything soon, so the old scenery will be visible again!!!

    Favorite thing: You should walk around and view the wonderful shops. There are many historic sites, dating from the gold rush days. Its a beautiful little town, surrounded by the beautifully forested Tahoe National Forest. Autumn is lovely here too. The people in Nevada City are friendly, love to party, and love their parades.

    Fondest memory: Whenever I leave I miss the forest.
