When my late husband Ben and I used to visit Northern California, one of our favorite places to eat was the Samoa Cookhouse in Eureka, CA. It is still just like it was when they used to feed the loggers and mill workers. The food is served "family style" and they keep it coming until you tell them you are full.

My older brother lives in northern California and the scenery up there is beautiful. He lives in a town called Paradise which is in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. The town of Chico lies in the Central Valley of California. Between Paradise and Chico, there is a beautiful canyon called Butte Creek Canyon. We try to go there whenever I visit my brother.

Every year I visit Lombardi Ranch in Saugus, CA to take my autumn photographs. Took this photo the first year I went there (2007). This year, due to the lack of water for their crops because of our long-time drought, they will not be open for the season. I will miss going there. Hopefully they will be open next year.

I visit this area every time I visit my brother in northern California. Butte Creek Canyon is in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. It runs from the mountains down to the town of Chico, CA. It is referred to as the "Smaller Grand Canyon". There is a cool covered bridge in the bottom of the canyon too.
