The Kautz Winery gold nugget is a fixture. It can be seen anytime, but so many other motherlode treasures are elusive. Vistas of wildflowers in bloom; old miner's shacks; river views such as Candy Rock, and Natural Bridges. Photo ops abound. A plethora of events in multiple communities offer art, drama, street faires, musical events and more. There is an ice rink in Long Barn, skiing on Ebbetts Pass and Sonora Pass. River rafting, antique boutiques, equestrian events Civil War Re-enactments, open air markets, casinos, crafters, spinners... the list seems endless. A treasure within reach for day trippers and weekenders both.
