I'll post up when I get back in Cali. Hopefully in January I'll be going home to Lake Almanor, I miss my house and the home mountains.
A decent day drive is up 44 from Redding, down CR A-21 to 36, 36 to 32 into Chico and back up the freeway. Some fast and some twisties with nice scenery. The possiblity of snow runs in there too, or a dazling white day after a fresh fall.
The Feather River canyon is a decent drive also for a day trip into the mountains.
Anyway, I'll holler up at you guys when I get back.
