Two locations for this one. The Spanish Ranch sign doesn't look like it will last too many more seasons.

From the Guidebook:

Miners going to the East Branch, Middle Fork, or North Fork of the Feather River separated at Spanish Rancho, established in July 1850 by two Spaniards, and at Meadow Valley, 2.5 miles from Spanish Ranch.
