Trinity County

Trinity County as stated by trinitycounty.org. Is located in the lower reaches of the Cascade Range in California. This county encompasses approximately 3,200 square miles of alpine grander. This is a wonderful place to satisfy outdoor vacations and activities. This is a largely underdeveloped area with hundreds if miles of Forest Service roads, trails, and old logging tracts.

A friend of mine and her family own of a large tree farm in this region of the country. Nestled deep within the woods is a perfect place to camp and barbecue. Only accessible via roads made by the family’s patriarch.

After the tour of her family’s land we drove into the nearby town. This small town houses the Jake Jackson Museum. This small museum has every thing from millions of years old fossils.

The gift shop yielded a plethora of Old-Fashioned Recipe Books. Which I cannot wait to delve into. Though I’m not sure if Hubby will be excited about the pumpkin one.
