DAY 54: YREKA, CA TO SAN FRANCISCO, CA

The fifty-fourth day began with an immaculate sunrise over the mountains in Redding, CA. We stopped at the Pit River Bridge. In the lake, we can see the docks where many boats are being held. Shasta Lake looked magnificent in front of the mountains and spreads of pine trees. The lake’s water level has been substantially lowered due to the recent droughts in California. We met a nice woman charging her I.D. 4 at an Electrify America station. We love to see this because the I.D. 4 is a car for everyone. She loves the quiet and non fume inducing vehicle. We then saw a large mural that read “LOVE”. It was in Chico, CA and made by artist Jed Speer, who uses the name Seizer-One professionally, finished the project in 2018. “The mural is a testimonial for the love of our hometown, Chico”, said Speer. We visited Sunsweet Growers plum farm near Fagan, CA. The I.D. 4 drove through the neatly placed trees. We also got to see some of the plums being harvested with the large yellow machines. They shake the trees a specific fashion and sort out the good from the bad plums. The plums from this farm get sent all over the world; Including Germany and compete down in South America. Northern California is known for a lot of farming. The vast fields of trees divided in perfect rows looked amazing from the drone. We made it to Sacramento, one of the states capitol cities, and visited Tiscornia Park and there were many people out on the water. They were enjoying different water activities such as boating and making sand castles. There was a cool customized Volkswagen GTi with a convertible top and red rims. We then crossed The Grass Valley as we headed towards Reno, NV. There was a windy road in the mountains as we headed into the Nevada desert. Reno is known “The Biggest Little City in the World”. The bright lights and busy town were so captivating. The day came to an end after seeing the strip.
