Kings Creek Falls

Kings Creek Falls is a great place for a photo opportunity as it is visually diverse with a fountain type look. All of its 46 feet cascade in different directions due to the protruding rocks behind. This waterfall is most visually stimulating during summer months when volume is less, allowing for a terraced appearance. This waterfall is moderately accessible. Located within the Lassen Volcanic National Park. More info: https://www.nps.gov/lavo/planyourvisit/hiking_kings_creek_falls.htm

Upper McCloud Falls

Upper McCloud Falls is a 25' waterfall in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The basalt rock outcropping is tightly placed, so that the waters of the McCloud River are forced through its narrow gate. The waterfall is impressive, and beautiful. The high rock walls are also incredible, lending the pair a great site for a photo op.

The Very Best Carrot Cake. Ever
One of my great weaknesses (okay, I have many!) is carrot cake.  My grandmother's version is one my family has used for years; it never fails.  The cream cheese icing isn't too bad either. But earlier this month I tasted a carrot cake that I really, really,...

Plumas-Eureka State Park

Plumas-Eureka State Park, located four miles west of Graeagle, is at the
foot of Eureka Park (also called Gold Mountain), which produced $25 million in gold from hard-rock mining during the late 1880s. Plumas-Eureka State Park features hiking trails that lead to four lakes and a first-come, first-served campground under pine trees along Jamison Creek.
The park has a museum (once a miner's bunkhouse) that features early
gold mining equipment and relics. Outside are a blacksmith shop, stamp mill, stable, mine office and a restored miner's home. During the summer, docents and park staff conduct tours of the buildings and provide blacksmithing demonstrations.

A variety of plant and animal life are abundant in the park. Birdwatchers
can observe the pileated woodpecker (largest North American woodpecker) and the calliope hummingbird (smallest North American hummingbird). [The best period for birding is April through May.] Some of the animals rarely seen at the park include bobcats, snowshoe hares, porcupines, long-tailed weasels and mountain lions. Squirrels, black bears and coyotes are more frequently noticed.

Madora and Eureka Lakes, as well as Jamison Creek, which flows through the park, provide fishing opportunities. Late spring and early summer are considered the best times to fish. Madora Lake fishing includes rainbow and brown trout, while Eureka Lake contains only brook trout. Jamison Creek has mostly rainbow trout, with a few brown trout.

Most of the park's visitation takes place during the summer. However, an
increasing number of people enjoy the park's winter recreational activities, such as cross-country skiing.
