Day’s Journey to Milton, CA

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On a day trip to Milton, California, with a fellow photographer, I took some pictures along the way. We drove from Stockton, California, via Highway 26 to Jenny Lind Road, to Milton Road, and to Rock Creek Road. We returned to Stockton on Highway 4. I learned that Milton was established in 1871 as a terminus for the Southern Pacific Railroad. It was named after Milton Latham, an railroad engineer. Milton was the first town in Calaveras County to have a railroad. I used a Nikon D600 FX with a Nikkor 50 mm normal lens and a Nikkor 20 mm wide angle. Calaveras County is one of my favorite spots to photograph simply because the past remains into the present with little or no modernization.
