Looks like I will finally get up there the last weekend of October, Friday for business and the weekend for me :)
I presume it will have cooled off quite a bit by then, will the color be gone already? Am hoping to stay in Mt. Shatsa City as I'm headed for the college in Weed.
Being the long-drive nut that I am, I can't help noticing that the coastal redwoods are up that way, albiet a bit of a drive. Is it feasilbe (good weather, of course) to head there via Medford both ways for the day? Yes, I know it's a long drive, but I am used to that on vacation and don't mind, though gas prices may make me abandon that :( I'd love to go down via Redding across the scenic route, but that would probably take too long...
Any advice greatly appreciated. Also, hope to ride if I can at the local stables---any comments or opinions?
