Christmas Eve

What happened to the "frightful" weather? Blue sky all around... and, that is good news for my brother. He has to work tonight until 10:30, then drive 52 miles over the mountain. I'm saving all my alcohol for Christmas dinner... since we can't have a Christmas Eve beer... Mmhhhaa aha haha hahhaha.

My morning coffee walk let me down past Burney Creek. It has been a very long time since I had last made that journey... the old rope swing is gone. In fact, I believe the entire tree that held the rope is gone. I know the place well, as I spent many summer days during my youth there, but it has changed so much. I wonder what the area looked like before it was settled....

Burney Valley is an interesting place. Its underground aquifer is larger than any human-build lake in California... that's huge!

The Cascade Mountain range is one of the newest land formations in the world... its origins date back to 20 million years ago. In contrast, the desert of Southern Utah is brilliant in its old age... Yin Yang... I have a deep passion and reverence for both places...

I want to visit the Pit River Indian Tribal office... I wonder if they have any written history that I could borrow, or purchase.
