The First Transcontinental Railroad, known originally as the "Pacific Railroad" was completed in 1869 with the aid of Chinese laborers. This project garnered quite a bit of interest in the Asian Pacific American community because of the contributions of Chinese American railroad workers to this monumental feat. Two symbols of this contribution are the Chinese Wall and the Summit Tunnel, both located on the Tahoe National Forest.

Happy Wanderings - Bear Valley Area

For those that have not discovered the Bear Valley area east of Nevada City, it is well worth some time.  Normally during the winter, the valley would be covered in white and would be suitable for an enjoyable snowshoe or cross country ski trip.  But without any snow, it still makes for a nice outing.  In addition to some National Forest System land, the majority of the valley is owned by PG&E and a variety of other private land owners.  Please be respectful of private land.
