Summer is here – it’s time to get out and explore the wonders of the world around us!
The Sacramento River is home to world-class fly fishing, and with Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s the ideal time to grab a couple of fly rods and take Dad out for some one-on-one time. Even if the trout don’t bite (and they will), you’ll have plenty of time to craft some fantastic fish stories.
If you’re looking to stretch your comfort zone, perhaps the motocross/dirt bike riding scene is for you. Members of several North State groups are ready to welcome you into their fold – but beware, they say that once you get started, it’s hard to stop.
We always encourage folks to buy local, and that sentiment can also be extended to dining experiences. In this issue, we’ll introduce you to Jim Boisselle and the delightful wines he’s pouring downtown at The Grape Escape, as well as Fred and Annette Magee, the proprietors of Shorty’s Eatery in Old Shasta. Then meet Jasvir “Jessie” Kaur, who is cooling customers off one scoop at a time at J’s Ice Cream.
We’ll also tell you about some of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest’s most unique workers – the mules whose packer leads them through the wilderness with about 150 pounds of equipment on their backs. The animals bring food and supplies to trial crews, firefighters and others working in the forest.
And finally, it’s time to raise the curtain on yet another season of Enjoy Movies in the Park. This free activity welcomes families and friends to enjoy a night out under the stars. Bring your blankets, lawn chairs or picnic baskets – we’ll also have onsite food vendors. Movies start at dusk and June’s movies are Friday nights in Caldwell Park.

Enjoy the long, luxurious days of summer!
