Our next stop was Sacramento the capital of California.
We camped at Minden Lake Thousand Trails about 30 miles from Sacramento.
We found a parking space down town (which wasn’t easy) and headed to the Capitol for a tour.
The stained glass seal above the entrance was made in 1908. The seal represents the history of California.The 80 member Assembly Gallery where votes are casts electronically.
California’s 40 member Senators meet in this chamber.
Senators are called individually and cast votes by voice.The building was built over 14 years (1860-1874.)
Each year, once the money raised to build the Capitol was spent construction stopped. There are many representations of bears through out the Capitol. They represent strength.On our way back to the truck we stopped at the Wells Fargo Museum
and learned about stage coaches played a role in moving money.
