The Adventure Continues… Yosemite Railroad
Two of my favorite subjects, Yosemite and trains, feature in today’s episode of California’s Gold. Huell absolutely loved riding on old trains, and the scenery is of course spectacular. I found it especially interesting that at the time this episode was filmed, the forest the train travels through was no more than 70 years old — having been entirely clear cut by the logging activities of the romantic “olden days.”
Join Huell as he takes an exciting 4-mile railroad excursion on Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad. Ride into history where powerful locomotives once hauled massive log trains through the Sierra mountains. Where mighty lumberjacks felled the timber and flumes carried lumber to the distant valley below. The Sierra National Forest’s majestic woods provide the backdrop for the narrow gauge journey back in time. This old steam train is a wonderful ride into the past.
