Verging on Paradise, Sundays in My City
Thanks again to hostess extraordinaire, Unknown Mami, for a fascinating blogland tour, Sundays in My City. Visit her site to visit the world.
"It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are...
Welcome to the Butte Creek Watershed. We're at the verge of Paradise and Chico, overlooking Butte Creek. This area's referred to as a "Mini Grand Canyon." The view really is spectacular. I haven't captured it well. I'm more impressed with the clouds right now.
Winds aren't too strong, so don't worry about the 25 mile drop.
than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them,

Paradise, CA trivia:
-Population in 2011 = 26, 408
-Scenes from Gone With the Wind were filmed here.
-Richard Moore of Wild Thing (the song) glory and the Troggs (the band) lives here. I met him at a party, nice guy.
-Tom Selleck has a home just north of here.
-54 registered sex offenders reside here. Chico isn't far behind. In fact, they tend to gravitate to Butte County (Chico, Paradise, Oroville, and the greater area), generally.
On that note, keep your head in the clouds and stay grounded.
Have a safe and peaceful Sunday and new week.
Thank you for visiting.
