One of the blogs on my regular rounds and which I link to a lot is Warren Meyer’s Coyote Blog. I’ve know this for a while, but today he posted something about a service he runs that my family and I enjoy a great deal.
McArthur-Burney Falls. I commented at his post.
Good job. It’s not really "private," (nor is any "private" property, for that matter) but I get what you’re aiming at.
In a couple of weeks we’ll have our 10th annual family camping trip just down the road, 10 miles south of the 299 / 89 junction at Herford Ranch off Dotty Rd. We enjoy the warm days, cool evenings, and starry skies. In the late afternoon, I fly the glassoff from Hat Creek Rim in a hang-glider. We almost always make a trip up to Burney Falls and have an ice cream or soda in your very nice and clean concession.
I’ll be looking for those improvements this time around.
The falls themselves are beyond beautiful; and even when it’s 100 degrees outside and you descend to the falls, it cools down into about the 70s, I’d estimate. Really nice. I had lots of photos, but lost them in a drive crash before I organized them and uploaded them for backup. Bea has some, though, and I can always get more.
Here’s a previous post about the annual trip, which was originally all about flying the rim every evening and is now about that and family camping. I plan to have lots of photos and video from this year. Here’s a short flying video starring me. That’s a less aggressive launch than it ought to be, but the landing is pretty much dead on.
