Road Trip to Railroad Park Resort

     As we Road Trip around NorCal I am always in search of something with the “Wow” factor to share with our readers and for this edition I hit the jackpot.     On a blustery day in December my better half Randy and I packed a quick overnight bag and took the lovely drive from Westwood to Dunsmuir for a quick getaway at the Railroad Park Resort.     Purchased by Mark and Mary Lilley in 2017 this 50 acre hideaway in the shadow of the majestic Castle Crags is not just a lodging option, it is...

Emerald Moths

Emeralds! By Jim Moore, Entomologist     In nature there are just two kinds of Emeralds: the Gemstones, and the Moths. This article covers the living green gems of NorCal called Emerald Moths. Perhaps you have seen one of these small green moths by your porch light and marveled that a moth could be almost completely green. I often do when I see one of the several species that make their home within our Mountain Valley region. Emerald Moths are members of the family of moths called Geometer Moths  – Geometridae – which means ‘earth-measurer’ so named after the larva which...

Tank on Getting a Cat

Tank on Getting a Cat    I heard my parents talking about getting a cat. Really? They’re mean. When I visit houses with cats, they sneer at me the whole time. They hiss too. They’re always mad; All I want to do is play. “Don’t get all bent out of shape, I try to tell ‘em, “just have some fun.” Not only do cats seem to have a bad attitude in general, they also are not very loyal.    When my dad calls my name, I’m there. Even if he just wants to sit on the couch and watch...

They are a smallish canid, standing at about 15” tall, weighing up to 13 pounds.  Their coloring is mostly gray, with reddish below and on the back of their head, and a white throat.  Their ears are prominent (better to hear you with)!    Did you know that they can climb, and they will actually take refuge or forage in trees?    They typically find a den site amongst boulders,...

Holiday Cookies for ME?

By Tank      It’s holiday time again and I kinda like it. Lots of get-togethers, lots of food and lots of kids. Eh.. they’re okay to play with but what I really like is all the food they throw down. The little ones drop it and the big ones hand it over willingly, whatever they’re eating, even cookies. I know my mom is getting things ready to make cookies. She does it every year. She gives them away to everyone else in the family, but she gives me zero! And then all of a sudden I can smell...
