The Californian Section Of The Sierra Nevada Mountain Range Pictured On An Attractive Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The Sierra Nevada Mountain Range covers an area across the states of Nevada and California. The picture on this acrylic fridge magnet, from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts, shows an area of the range in California. The colour contrasts of the blue water, green trees, and white snow-capped mountains make for a beautiful view. The Sierra Nevada is not just about the view for the state of California. The state utilises many of the natural resources to its benefit, from agriculture to timber, water and tourism. The Sierra Nevada area provides sixty five per cent of California's developed urban and rural water supply.
Sites To Visit In The Sierra Nevada Mountain Range Area Of California
In the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, lies the Foresthill Bridge which, at seven hundred and thirty feet above ground, is said to be the third highest bridge in the United States of America. The structure has had its time in the screen limelight having featured in the opening scenes of the Vin Diesel action movie 'xXx'. It is also a site for romance. Many visiting couples inscribe their initials on the metal railings. Hundreds of these inscriptions have been preserved over the years by oxidization. Also in the Sierra Nevada foothills is Jamestown. This was the site where gold was first discovered in Tuolumne County. Many of the buildings date back to the 1870s and 1880s and antique shops abound. Also on the site is the Railtown 1897 State Historic Park which houses locomotives, workshops, and the roundhouse from the Sierra Railway which arrived in Jamestown in 1897. There are plenty of things to do and sights to see in the area. One such sight is captured in the picture of the Sierra Nevada, California on our attractive acrylic fridge magnet.
