Schoolyards are alive with energetic students once again, and the promise of fall teeters on the horizon.

We love to celebrate creativity, and this issue is bursting with stories about people who are sharing their myriad artistic talents with the North State and beyond. Meet Cailin Henson, who uses pen and ink, wood-burning pens, glass etchers and more to create usable souvenirs so visitors can take a piece of Mount Shasta home with them. Another Siskiyou County creative is Kathie Matthews, a registered nurse and world-renowned expert in silk painting.

For those who like live art, there’s the Axiom Repertory Theatre, a roving independent theatre company that produces mature and sometimes gritty plays that challenge the actors. Or look to the big screen and enjoy the Firereel Film Festival in Redding, which featured 166 short films last year.

Little ones can be royalty for a day during the Cookies & Queens Royal Tea Party, an annual fete presented by the Shasta Lake Youth Leadership program. Children dress up and enjoy a meal of fruit kabobs, finger sandwiches and cookies served on fine china at a themed table, and they’re entertained by youth leaders dressed up as Disney princesses and other characters.

This is also prime time for anglers who are interested in landing a steelhead. The prized sportfish begin their migration up the Trinity River in September. Prepare for an epic battle.

As the leaves begin to change, take some time to contemplate the North State’s unrivaled beauty. 

Happy autumn, and enjoy!
