Yosemite Gold Country Network

bob-borchard-with-girlBob Borchard, a third generation native of California, has been exploring Yosemite Gold Country for over 40-years. As a resident of Mariposa, and having worked in the County and region for many years, he has a breadth of knowledge of places, and people, that make Yosemite Gold Country one of the most interesting and colorful regions in the West. Bob’s interest in history stems from his study of his family, great-grandfather Christian Borchard, arrived in the California Gold Fields in the 1850s.

The heart of the “explorer” and “adventurer” runs deep in the Borchard family and Bob, in his compilation of information on Yosemite Gold Country, brings a unique “style” to his documentation that conveys the feeling of being part of this great region and a member of a unique community of artists, performers, and fellow explorers.
