Gas is so expensive these days that our day trips are closer to home. It takes about an hour to wind through the hills to Lassen National Forest, and Deer Creek. Our first hike on Deer Creek Trail was easy and pleasant. In May the wildflowers and dogwoods are in bloom. The trail leads into the Ishi Wilderness. You can google it for more information. Here are a few of the thumbnails of today's pictures. You can click on any one to see larger images.

It felt so good to get away from the hum of Chico and into the sound of birds, creek, and wind in the mountains!
