Where is Red Bluff? It is centrally located between Chico and Redding.
The town has about 15,000 people,
and its county, Tehama (pronounced tee-hay-mah), has about 45,000 people.
It has a rich history. The first
president of the California Republic had a home here, and the site still stands alongside the Sacramento River. During the
year special events are held, and people dress as they did in the 1800s at the Ide Adobe.
Exciting rodeos are
held each year. There are two major parades, one at rodeo time and one at Christmas.
In nearby towns Civil War
reinactments take place (with the outcome always the same).
Red Bluff has an antique air show at the Red Bluff
Airport. For flying buffs, there is a tract of homes with an airstrip.
Ishi, the last of his tribe, was found
in Tehama and citizens tried to integrate him into the modern world. His story is very interesting.
is the gateway to Lassen Park, a beautiful unspoiled National Park. The volcano last erupted in 1915. Signs from the eruption
are still very much in evidence, with lava tubes and rock in the area.
