Llano Seco Sunset, Wetlands.

From Interstate 5 in northern California, there are a few Wildlife areas, which are very pristine. These historic natural wetlands formed from runoff from the Sacramento river and Butte Creek.  Located in Butte and Glenn counties, the Upper Butte Basin Wildlife Area is a sight to see.

I was passing by the Llano Seco around sunset.  I went to see Storm Large at the Laxson Auditorium, at Chico State. She rocks!  Look up her website. She sings with Pink Martini also. They have a song, called Veronique. Storm Large

It’s a great place for bird watching, there are many species of birds. There are so many birds to see, here are just a few.  There are pelicans, hawks, eagles, falcons, cuckoo, sparrows, cranes, herons, starlings, swallows, larks, blackbirds, and so many more I won’t list.  Go to the website, and look at the pdf file, Bird Checklist.  There are so many they need a check list.

Trinity Journal – 125 Years Ago


This is the best laugh I have had in some time. In the Trinity Journal Weaverville’s newspaper there is a section called
“The News Back Then”. They have back to 150 years ago.
Well, in the 125 years ago section, Saturday, September 15, 1883. There are a few sentences about what is happening in the town.

They talk about building work commencing for Trinity Center’s

new school house. The next sentence and paragraph reads.

That is it. Just the one sentence. I guess the person writing that did not like Chico, CA.
