    Sierra Snapshots is a guided tour of the wonders of the Sierra Nevada. This program features Malakoff Diggins Historic State Park located in Northern California, outside of Grass Valley. It's part of Gold Rush history as well as environmental history. Hydraulic canons were used to blast hillsides in search of gold. The destruction and impact to faraway cities (including San Francisco Bay) led to a law banning hydraulic efforts. Now with budget cuts, the park is slated to close. Spectacular beauty, fascinating history.

                      Photos and video from a 5-day trip through Death Valley. Watch in HD! Destinations include: - Harrisburg/Eureka Mine - Rhyolite - Leadfield - Titus Canyon - Racetrack Playa - Ubehebe Lead Mine - Teakettle Junction - Hunter Mountain: There were tire tracks from when the snow was fresh, but the road was covered in ice when we were there. We had chains (and were using them) and snow tires, but no 4wd. Because there was little (if any) shoulder/berm to the road, steep outward sloping turns, and huge cliffs, we turned around rather than risk sliding over the edge. We've driven Hunter Mountain twice before on other trips, but the conditions were much worse this time. - Trona Pinnacles Music: "Wither" by Dream Theater "Dogs" by Pink Floyd "This is Letting Go" by Rise Against
