Communities Rising January 17: DFC Survey Needs You

   Which do you prefer: snow or rain? I prefer an open escape route and highway. I’ve been researching the history of Feather River Canyon and the building of the scenic route designated highway for a story for the March edition of High Country Life. It’s a fascinating feat of engineering on par with the pyramids as far as I’m concerned. As I read up on it, I’m amazed it was ever built in the first place. Humans do some crazy things and accomplish the wild but cannot over power and tame.

 I send nothing but warm, dry thoughts to the Caltrans workers busy trying to get it cleared so we can come and go once again down the majestic and treacherous road way.

   Now more than ever, we need your input, your tips, your story ideas and press releases. Send your information to to [email protected]. Stay safe out there and very warm.
