Birds splash in rain puddles, skiers glide down the gloriously powdery slopes of Mount Shasta and umbrellas are finally getting some use—this wet, wintry weather is perfect for snuggling up with the ones you love.
Sometimes a weekend getaway does wonders to reignite the spark in your relationship. Why not take your valentine on a little road trip? Snowman’s Hill between McCloud and Mount Shasta has a magical history, and it’s a perfect spot to stage a winter adventure. Or take a Sunday drive along the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway—we begin our five-part peek at this All-American Road in this issue.
Speaking of passion, the members of the Teen Advisory Board at the Redding Library are pouring their hearts into their community, planning events, performing service work and more to make their world a better place.
Everyone loves a good love story, and Randy Holbrook and Valerie Lytle have merged their unique talents to host weddings, reunions and parties at the Rustic Rose in Red Bluff. Few things are more rewarding than playing a small role in someone else’s fairy tale as their own continues to grow, they say.
Woodworker Jonathan Stroud’s world was upended when he severed the fingers from his left hand—losing his livelihood and his self-confidence in the process. A little creative thinking and a lot of courage led him to start crafting unique jewelry, and his Chasing Victory business is the ensuing success story.
Love the outdoors? You can join one of the greatest citizen-science projects in the world. The Great Backyard Bird Count is planned for President’s Day weekend, and it’s a great excuse to get out, look to the skies and learn more about the feathered friends that call the North State home (at least for part of the year).
If you’re still looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone, don’t forget to stop by Enjoy the Store in downtown Redding. We’ll help you select a crate full of treats that Cupid will be proud to deliver.
Celebrate love, and enjoy!
