Mayberry Kind of Town

Monday, I got the day off.  JS had business up in Plumas County,
so I rode along.  Our town Oroville is at the bottom of the Feather 
River Canyon.  Quincy is at the top of the canyon about 75 miles
 and the county seat for Plumas.  I love the drive up the canyon.

When I was in junior high and high school we lived in Sierra Valley just to
 the East of Quincy and had to drive though it to visit family.
 So it's been apart of my life for a long time.

It's a Mayberry kind of town,  Beautiful old court house and park 
right in the middle of town.  A monument to the Veterans for all to see.
Original old building along main street, with all their rustic charm
and don't forget to stop at the "Polka Dot" for a burger and cold drink.

A high mountain valley town that saw it's hay day in the gold rust and 
 the logging boom.  And has always been home to fat horse and cows.
It is beautiful here, I have always thought it would be a nice place to retire to.

One of my favorite parts, is dropping over into the Thompson Valley,
and day dreaming about the ranch there and if it were mine.

I have to agree with Crystal, I keep trying to get the hubby to travel a little, because I would like to try to get out of New York state someday.

It's a nice little town, not to much snow in the winter and not to hot in the summer.
