Good morning, readers,
This week's feature package was a ton of fun to write, so we sure hope
it's just as fun to read. A few of us headed off on mini adventures in
the backcountry of Butte County. I got to take a trip up through Inskip
to Philbrook Reservoir, in the northeast corner of Butte County;
Assistant News Editor Howard Hardee took off for Curtain Falls on the
Feather River--be sure to check out the pics of his daredevil friends
(copycatting not recommended!); and staff writer Ken Smith spent a night
camping at Sly Creek Reservoir, a hidden gem on the eastern border.
In other news: We catch up with the "mule man" on his journey through
the North State; we check in with the city and a local arborist to
determine the cause of all the branches we've seen falling from the
trees; and Arts Devo offers a farewell to Jim "Moondog" Dwyer.
