May seems to be the North State’s sweet spot – sunny days give way to cool nights, and Mother Nature hasn’t ratcheted up the heat quite yet. What better time for an outdoor adventure?

It’s a lovely time to meander up Interstate 5 to Siskiyou County, and our spotlight is on downtown Dunsmuir this month. Th e railroad was central to this tiny town’s history (John F. Kennedy even spoke from the back of a train here during his campaign), and it remains a signifi cant presence. Brick buildings, quaint businesses and world-class fishing are among Dunsmuir’s charming attributes. If you plan your visit for May 23, you’ll find yourself immersed in Dogwood Daze. The town’s annual celebration of its dogwood trees features homemade pies, soapbox derby races, live music and more.

While you’re up north, a little detour to McCloud is always worth the trip. Stop by McCloud Mercantile, listed on the National Registry and carefully remodeled to honor the past.

Also in this issue, we’ll give you tips for a creative date with your significant other. And with Mother’s Day right around the corner, you can adapt one of these ideas to treat the special woman in your life with the gift she will cherish most – quality time with the ones she loves. If she enjoys wine, perhaps a day trip to Trinity County is in order, where you’ll find some unique vintners who have produced award-winning wine in the 96,000-acre Trinity Lakes Viticulture Area.

Don’t forget to stop by Enjoy the Store in Redding or Red Bluff , where we’ll help you find the perfect, locally made gift to honor Mom.

Enjoy spectacular spring!
