Chipps Creek hike revisited

Sharing older (low rez) “images of life” from the archives as often as possible…enjoy and share….thank you!

these photos are water marked with “flyinghorsedesign photography” before we changed our name

This hike starts in the immense Feather River Canyon, and goes up steeply for 4 short switchbacks, and then follows a level route created long ago by miners. There is a secluded campsite for Pacific Crest Trail travelers as they prepare for a nearly 5000′ climb, and flood-polished metamorphic rock for day hikers to rest on and admire the creek. This is low elevation, despite having big mountains all around, and is snow-free most of the winter.
