This small town is located in the Sierra Nevada foothills and is known as the 'Queen of the Southern Mines'.  Sonora appears to be the largest of the Route 49 corridor gold-mining towns and has an amply supply of nice restaurants and retail shops. But unfortunately, the town has a problem with the homeless and roving teenagers. Traffic through the main corridor is awful. I witnessed a lot of seedy-looking characters milling about.
