Indian Summer

The weather this fall has been amazing. The warm weather is unexpected this time of year, but certainly appreciated. Today is overcast and we may have rain tomorrow. Hopefully we can trick-or-treat with no rain!

Halloween Decorations

I pass this decorated yard just about anytime I go anywhere. It is on one of the main roads in this area. They also have more decorations I will post this week. You can partially see the Lassen 'L' in the background. More posts with the Lassen 'L' are above.

Prop. 8 march

Saturday some residents walked down Main Street showing their support for 'NO' on Prop. 8. Prop. 8 is a very hot topic right now.

Next week's election is going to be interesting to say the least!

I forgot to say thanks to my sister for snapping this photo when we were putting up yard sale signs!

Deer skinning on Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!

Deer hunting season has started in Lassen County. Idaho grocery (one of Susanville's oldest businesses) has a mobile service to dress out the deer. I have heard through the grapevine that it is a very good service. Thanks to my sister for taking the photo's while we were driving past!

The Susanville Rhino

When this building was remodeled 5+ years ago, the Rhino was added. I don't know why this was added. But, it is interesting right on Main Street. The hat does change from time to time. The building has been empty for close to a year, maybe longer. The window with the Stevens Realty sign used to have stuffed and mounted deer heads sitting in the front windows. They were not hung up, just laying on their sides in the window sill. It didn't exactly yell out "rent me" with the deer heads laying around!! Next time I am walking by, I will have to check to see if the heads are still in there.

I love Autumn

The trees at my parents house are really pretty right now. Hopefully this will last a few more weeks!

Last Night's Sunset

The sunset last night was beautiful. When we were driving home, we had to stop at the Susanville Ranch Park to snap some photos from the parking lot.

Wandering Skipper Migration

I wish this photo had turned out better. In late July the Wandering Skipper migrated across Lassen County. This is Highway 44 just outside of Susanville. The entire area was blanketed in these little creatures. They look like small orangish/brown butterflies. It was a site to see!

Mountian Happy Face

"The mountian is smiling at me!" That is what my 6 year old was yelling when he saw this. This mountian is across from the Hat Creek Rim Scenic rest area on Highway 44 between Susanville and Old Station. I am assuming the brown areas were logged, but what a funny mark it left.

Good Bye Summer, Hello Autumn!

Shoes, Sandals, and Casts, Oh My!

Hello! I am finally back from computer hell! I have a new computer and I forgot how much I missed visiting the other Daily City Photo sites!
This 'Shoe Tree' is on US Highway 395 between Reno, NV and Susanville, CA. The cast on the tree caught my eye! Normally the tree is full of different shoes and sandals. There have been an occasional ice skate or roller skate, but the cast is a first!
Now let's see how long it takes Cal Trans to tear down the shoes that accumulated over the summer.
