Mark Twain made this Gold Rush town famous with his 1865 short story, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” but the county’s treasures were discovered long before that. Join Simon as he seeks out this region’s “perfect places,” and basks in its awesome scenery. Marvel at Big Trees State Park, experience the thrills, chills, and spills of white-water rafting on the Stanislaus River, rappel 165 feet into the extraordinary underground caves at Moaning Cavern, and go house-boating on New Melones Lake. Simon also visits the Ironstone winery, and lives out a Wild West fantasy in Millerosa.
