About 2 hours north (with traffic) of Los Angeles is a place called Acton.
It is a small community just off Highway 14 nestled in the Sierra Pelona Mountains. The town was originally a railroad camp from 1873 to 1876 until gold was found there and it soon became a popular mining place.
I ventured here on my own today and found some peace in this quiet town. A hint of the Old West still lingers here like the scent of tobacco and leather. Watch my short video below. Music by Scott Jacobs.

Places to check out: The old Acton Market, the new Acton Market, the 49er (Acton’s first saloon that is still open for business today, and Acton Park (during the summer there are free movies in the park and country line dancing).
