The older you get, the greater appreciation you gradually get for the love of your home town. Both the scenery you mentally stow away....along with the memories that are made there. This fella on facebook, dedicates his time each day to snap atleast 1 photo from the subtle, yes very scenic...Paradise, Ca.
The town I have grown up in, the small town I have taken for granted, the same small town I plan to live my days out in, as well as raise my child(ren) in.
Paradise, Magalia and the Feather River Canyon area.

Today I give you...


Magalia Resevoir. Half a mile past the northern Paradise town limit sign....

Haha thanks man. Like I said, theres this fella on Facebook that dedicates his retirement days to exploring our surrounding area and snaps photos. I cannot take ANY credit for these pics, as I did not take them. I did ask for his permission before hand to do this on this forum.

Today I give you...


Lower Paradise. As Clark Rd trails down into the valley floor towards CA Highway 70

A early winter, Paradise sunset. I get to witness 5 of these a week behind my place of work every evening between 6:00-6:30, during the fall/winter season. No filter, no effects. Just nature at its finest.

(I can take credit for this picture)

In case anybody is still viewing this thread on a daily basis....

Today I give you....



"The Bike Path", as known to us locals. It stretches from the southern most end of town to the northern town limit sign. What used to be an old railroad track. Now covered and asphalted over, it makes for a great recreation path by many.

I am, although quietly thus far. I spend a lot of time out in nature just enjoying being there.
The scenic differences between your end of the country and here in the great midwest are pretty striking.
Thanks for sharing.

I too, try my best to go out and enjoy nature. Like I said, the older I get and more I travel....the greater love I get for my pine trees and rolling hills.

Summer is creeping on the ridge already. With the summer heat around here and minimal water fall this past winter, that usually relates to a good fire season.

Today I Give You...

One of the only fire tower lookout on the Feather River Canyon overlooking Paradise/Magalia Area.

Can anybody guess what the big billboard looking structure is in front of the tower?

These narrow waterways that line the Feather River Canyon and Butte Creek Canal, are known as The Flumes. They served the great purpose of transporting timber and lumber down from the logging sites and lumber mills.
Today they are now a popular floating and tubing attraction to the locals. Above certain sections of the flumes, stretch fairly long metal grated catwalks. Makes for a nice adrenaline rush on a bike, or a pleasant stroll after a beer down at the river.

And here is a video of me riding my bike acroas a section of them awhile ago.
