Where We Will Meet

Meet in front of Fallon Ice Cream Parlor

Where The Walk Will End

For now we'll plan on ending at the same location.

About This Walk

Hello walkers!  My name is Elizabeth, I was born in Tuolumne County and have lived much of my life nearby.  Fall is one of my favorite times to visit Columbia the summer crowds have left, it’s cooler, and Halloween is coming!   I plan on starting in front of the Fallon Ice Cream Parlor, and as of now finish in front of the Gold Mine Office.  If there’s enough interest, I’m up for changing that to a location to meet for dinner.

Also going on in Columbia that evening is a Stories in Stone tour of the cemetery.  I’m not including it as part of the official walk since it does cost $25.  But I’m planning on going on it, and would welcome others to join me as well. I am not affiliated with the group, or getting any sort of kickbacks – but I am checking to see if we can get a group rate.  Please stay tuned!

If you aren’t familiar with Columbia State Park it’s an historic, but active mining town.  There is an active blacksmith, mine tours, gold panning, stagecoach rides, theater and a number of shops and delicious restaurants mixed in with exhibits and museum.  It’s mostly flat, but bring comfy shoes.  If you have a sweet tooth start salivating for the Candy Kitchen. There’s a large public, free parking lot just below where we are meeting.

Hi peoples – I created the Flickr Group here – https://www.flickr.com/groups/3030963@N23/

Also when I got home I realized I follow 3 out of 4 of you on 3 different Social Networks. Feel free to hit me up at any/all/none of these:

Flickr: (I rarely use this anymore, tbh, but still seems the best way to share as a group) https://www.flickr.com/photos/63341656@N04/ ( LizzyH95 )

Feel free to add any links to you in the comments!!

And last but not least – don’t forget to submit a photo for the contest! There should be a Contest tab on the Walk website – it’s due on the 16th!

Hashtags –October 2nd, 2016

I also forgot to mention the hashtags if you want to share socially – the generic one is #WWPW2016 and for our walk it’s #WWPW2016CSPCA

Walk Reminder!September 29th, 2016

Thank you everyone who has registered! I’m happy to see that the weather forecast looks much nicer than the last several days. See you on Saturday!

  • epiieq1 It looks like the photo contest aspect is through ViewBug this year, so don't be surprised when you want to submit your entry and it takes you there.

  • Elizabeth Hahn Weren't they through Flickr before? I don't remember. I also forgot to mention the hashtag if you want to share socially - the generic one is #WWPW2016 and for our walk it's #WWPW2016CSPCA I'll also make a Flickr group we can share all of our photos to (if you want) - but I need coffee first!

  • epiieq1 Previously they've been on Flickr for general sharing, but the competition was directly through the site, not somewhere else. I guess this is a change for this year. I'm up for a Flickr group.
