Columbia with the cousins

After a number of days of straight rain the kids needed to get out and run around. So we met the cousins at Columbia. Columbia is a Ghost town up in the Mother Lode near where my parents live. The main street is closed to car traffic and all the stores look like they did back in the gold rush days.

 My kids mostly like to climb on the large rocks left after the hydraulic mining that was done in this area.

 Then they headed to the museum where they could dress up as miners or in pioneer type dresses.

 The kids set up a table and had a pretend meal.
 They then headed next door and did a little old time bowling.

It was a great way to spend an afternoon between rainstorms.
