Columbia State Historic Park

When I was young, we visited Columbia State Historic Park fairly often. It was near the cabin my dad built. Whenever we had first-time cabin visitors, we'd take them to Columbia for some gold panning, delicious sarsaparilla, a ride in the stagecoach and a bag of old-fashioned candy. Steve visited Columbia as a child too, though not nearly as often as I did. We decided to take a detour on our last trip to Bear Valley and take Trevor to Columbia for the first time.

Columbia was exactly how I remembered it. Trevor loved panning for gold, ordering sarsaparillas at the saloon, riding the stagecoach, and visiting the museum. He also loved the bag of candies we let him buy. It was a great day.

  2. Hi Cindy. It is awesome that you took Trevor somewhere where you used to go often! I love the layout you made with your photos - the design is wonderful and captures your trip beautifully!

  3. This is an awesome layout, with awesome memories captured! I love the rustic vibe of the layout, with the torn edges, the star, the block font title lined up perfectly ... I love it!! :)

  4. How fun! Love the layout of this one too! :)
