2019-11 Jeeps at Alabama Hills

Your TD4WD Club has an exciting schedule for 2020.  Below are some highlights.  To get more information and to register, log in to www.TD4Wheelers.org.  

February 29th at 5 PM at the TD Lodge we have a social planned – this is a great opportunity to meet club members and ask any questions you might have about the club or events.  Socials are planned monthly so check out the club web site for other dates.

On May 23 we have an underground tour of the Sixteen-to-One Gold Mine in Allegheny scheduled with a trail run down Foote’s Crossing.  We’ll see the work of Italian stonemasons who built stone embankment walls to make the route passable above the Middle Yuba River – it is a registered historic site that connected the Allegheny Mines with the mines in Grass Valley and Nevada City. The tour cost is $100 per person and requires advance reservations.  

We have monthly runs scheduled June through November including a June 13th visit to the spectacular Lagomarsino Petroglyph Site, where there are over 2000 individual rock art panels some dating back 10,000 years. 

Our fall trip is to the Alabama Hills in Lone Pine with a visit to the privately owned Cerro Gordo Ghost Town and Mines. The Alabama Hills are famous setting for over 150 films including Iron Man and How the West was Won.  The rock outcroppings of the Alabama Hills are beautiful.  Cerro Gordo mined silver and later zinc that contributed to the economic development of Los Angles.
