3 PCT Northern California

  1. 1. Northern California In this section the landscape makes the transition from the granite bedrock of the Sierra Nevada Crest to the fertile, forested, volcanic soil of the glaciated Cascade Mountains. The people who live in this land of jagged, twisted canyons are an independent breed. They earn their living by logging, gold mining, ranching, and growing assorted nefarious cash crops. This very rugged and secluded section begins near Donner Summit (Pooh Corner) and extends to the Oregon border.
