We had a wonderful trip to Yreka a few days ago. My daughter wanted to ride on the Stage (our bus) with two of her friends. Aaron and I went in the car, and met up with the girls at Walmart. They had a great time shopping on their own - I was mainly there to make sure they got back on the Stage at the end of the day. It is a two hour trip down a long winding river highway, so if they were to miss the Stage there's no second chance... only one bus runs, and that's only two days per week.
On the way to Yreka Aaron and I stopped on the cliff overlooking the Tree of Heaven river access.
