After reading about the Trinity County there was no way we are going to pass through to the coast from Redding without visiting the area and decided to spend some time there to visit old towns, lakes and hike to waterfalls
The ability to change plans as we go makes it all great....
We located a small C.G near the river in Lewiston with full hookups, internet a great host and settled for 3 nights, we could even pick up black berrie’s from the place.
In the next few days we hiked to Whisky Falls, a 3 Mile easy hike to a beautiful deserted waterfall with a small pool benith.
Attended a Symphony on the beach at Brandy Creek Beach with outstanding surroundings, some poeple directly from the lake with bathing suites …
Had time to visit an old car show in Weaverville (the County Seat), stroll the Main drag mainly with bars,old buildings, museum and a theater.
Have no idea how the star of David of D.B (Dodge Brothers) works together with the “kosher” pig….
