Oh my goodness. I hardly recognize Copperopolis! What a great look at what it was! Thanks for posting this!

... is also 30 years ago. In the good old times? :-)

Is your motor home on O'Brynes Ferry as it turns to meet Highway 4? I would love to get a current photograph from the same perspective.

I can almost see that the second road sign says "O'Byrnes Ferry Rd" and points to the left...can you read what it says under that from your original photo? That will help with my search. Thanks!

I scan the 30 year old SLIDE more deeply again. If I can read it, I tell you. See my picture 9993680 with the hill in the background. The hill looks like in Google Earth. Greetings from Cologne.

I found it!! See my photo number 10139017. The road that your motor home was on has been moved so I got as close as I could and took the photo. I knew I would find it!!

You should have seen me on the side of the road taking the photos! I was so excited, grinning from ear to ear, jumping up and down... a large group of motorcyclists drove by and were laughing and pointing at me... it was pure joy... and a beautiful day also! It is difficult to express what fun that was! Now here we are on Google Earth together... how grand is that! :-) Deb
