July 2019 SunSational

Editor's Note 

July 2019


LAZY DAYS by the lake, juicy tomatoes picked right off the vine, poolside parties that stretch into starry nights and a great outdoors to explore – summer is in full swing, and it’s sun-sational.

Need an adrenaline rush?  Nigel Skeet and Ryan Spitz know a little bit about adrenaline. Together, they teamed up to create an adventure/endurance race aimed at spotlighting the abundance of outdoor opportunities in the vast terrain of Northern California. The end game is getting the world to see the beauty and economic potential of the North State’s outdoor adventure industry.

Paddle your cares away with a trip to Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park, tucked away in the northeast corner of Shasta County. You need a boat, canoe or kayak to reach this pristine park, which offers lessons in hydrology, geology and cultural history.

If caves are more your style, you’ve got a rare opportunity to take a guided tour through Fern Cave, a 40,000-year-old subterranean feature in the Lava Beds National Monument that’s home to a unique ecosystem of plants, animals and Native American art.

Did you know the North State is home to the second-largest city park in the United States? Bidwell Park is known as the Jewel of Chico, and it’s a lovely spot for a bike ride or a picnic.

Head north for a double dose of adventure – Skyak combines a full day of zipline and kayaking into one memorable expedition. Start with a zipline tree-to-tree canopy tour before kayaking on Malone Springs in the Upper Klamath Lake wetlands.

Please join us for Enjoy Movies in the Park, which will be in Anderson River Park every Friday in July. It’s the perfect chance to kick back with family and friends while we treat you to a movie under the stars. Bonus – the river knocks the temperature down by at least 10 degrees!

Slather on some sunscreen, pour yourself an ice-cold beverage and savor every moment of sweet summer. Enjoy!
