This is a great place to go if you love rocks and fossils and they are labeled and displayed. They also sell jewelry, rock tools, small bags of rocks you can pick out, and lots of other interesting items. There is a wonderful rock museum in the back and it is a must see! Plan to spend a lot of time there as I didn't allow enough time and plan on going back to really explore. We were there on a Friday night and didn't have enough time as we had another place to be. Check the hours first as unless it is Christmas time they are not usually open on weekends. If you love rocks you can really rock on in this place. Of course almost everything is available to purchase too. If you make jewelry this is also a great place for you or just purchase some too!

We have taken this highway to go to Lassen and Lake Almanor and it is less winding than Highway 32 from Chico but it is longer. It is scenic once you get higher up into the mountains, and the views are nice, and there are also some very small towns on the way. Lassen National Park and Lake Almanor are both must see attractions.

We went out to the Sacramento River Bend Area. We also explored the different trails such as Yana Trail. Its a bit dried out now being the end of summer. There is good views of the river in some areas and in other ares its just lots of open land with trees.

When I first came across the Tuscan Ridge Estate Winery ad in the newspaper, I had no idea what to expect other then a "cork, canvas and bubbly" event. It sounded interesting and had been something I was hoping to try. I set the date.
The following Sunday morning I made the drive out to Red Bluff and upon my arrival I was pleasantly surprised!!! Who would have thought that in such a remote location I would find what I call a HIDDEN GEM!!!
The location is stunning, the owners were more then welcoming!!! Jeff and Lori pour their hearts and souls into their business and it is quite obvious, from all the fun events like the cork, canvas and bubbly to the wood-fired pizza, wine and live music every Thursday and Saturday!
I wouldn't call myself a sommelier but I would say I have a well developed palate for good wine! I typically prefer reds however my tasting at Tuscan Ridge began with a bubbly and a Sauvignon Blanc, both of which I LOVED! I knew at that moment that this was going to be a new favorite :) I then completed my tasting with a few of their perfectly blended reds! Needless to say, I have been searching for a place to become a member and Tuscan Ridge Estate Winery WON my HEART ❤️❤️
To Lori and Jeff: Thank you for being such wonderful and welcoming people, who truly care about their visitors experience.
I would HIGHLY recommend this winery to all friends, family and future visitors!!

When we visited (November) the house was completely covered and encased such that you could n't see any of the house underneath. Do n't visit until renovation is completed. Apart from this the site is in a pleasant location on the banks of a river.

Some years ago I thought this was called "Peace Park" and was to have had a labyrinth maze to walk and contemplate. We never did go until this past month and found that it is now the Park of Study and Reflection. And instead of a labyrinth it has a stainless steel tube, called "The Monolith," in the middle of a small field.
And while it is based on some new age philosophy (which in and of itself is unusual given the conservative nature of the area), it just doesn't seem complete or, really, a place to contemplate anything except avoiding the star-thistle that is rampant in the field.
Maybe it was because it was after summer, but I get the feeling any landscaping with grass or rock gardens just isn't part of the experience. If they did put up a labyrinth, maybe watered an area and planted something it would be a nice place. And, perhaps, that is in future plans, but as of now it is just a shiny tube in a dry, thorny spot. But at least it is just off 99E, so it is handy if you want to see it.

The area located in the middle of California, marked by San Joaquin to the south and Sacramento to the north.
I grew up here and have recently moved back after a 25 year absence. While it isn't perfect, I think it is a great place to live. Thanks to the fertile soil, about half of the country's food is grown here. That equates to freshness and low prices delivered to your dinner table. Bakersfield, the southern-most large city, offers jobs not only in agriculture, but also in the oil industry and manufacturing. It is surrounded by smaller cities which offer life straight out of Mayberry. The cost of living isn't really high, all things considered. We are two hours to the Central Coast, 30-45 minutes from the mountains and two hours from the 'culture' of the LA theaters. Two hours north lies Fresno, again surrounded by agriculture and quaint smaller cities.
There is a lot of history to be found and learned here, and myriad museums abound in which to learn that history. There is constantly changing scenery also whether you're driving North, East, West or South. It's a great place to live.
