Point of Interest

12th June 2002

We went on a hike in Lassen National Park this last weekend. (Hike is a euphemism for seven hours of off-trail snow plowing in running shoes while clinging to the nice young man with the GPS.) Some favorite things from the trip up:

  • A billboard for Colusa Casino advertising high-stakes bingo.
  • Hogsback Road, where an obviously important hog-related event presumably took place sometime in the 1900s.
  • A truck with “Chevrolet” airbrushed on the back in flowing script. There were rose vines circling the word, and a big red apple in place of the “O.”
  • James and Son Prune Dehydrators.
