Our youngest child loves seeing the "Welcome to California" sign so quickly after heading out on journeys from our home in Medford, Oregon. Only 30 miles north of the California/Oregon State line, we frequently find ourselves back in California, the State we relocated from in 2004.
Saturday was one of those days, when we unanimously decided our family time would start out at the Yreka Gold Rush Days festival. After meandering through the streets of Yreka, California looking at the offerings available at the many booths along the way, enjoying the summer sprinkling of rain, we went in search of the chili cook-off, but never found it (think we arrived too late)and our youngest ended up with the all time favorite hamburger instead. We did find Gary Nelson of Ashland Home Net and his wife along the way, though.
We also found a wonderful lunch at the Silver Spoon Bistro & Wine Bar located at 322 West Miner Street, and finished a delicious Mediterranean Wrap and the house special of Tri-Tip in Lime with Green Beans and Rice just in time to enjoy the re-enactment of a Gold Rush Days shootout on the streets of Yreka.
Not ready to head back to Medford yet, we continued on our journey through Northern California, ending up at the town of McCloud, an historic Company Owned town from the peak lumber days located on the base of Mount Shasta. See Part 2 for more of this great Cooper Family Summertime adventure.
See you out there!
