Interesting! I'll bet my logger-grandfather knew about this, and maybe even my dad.

This 2004 photo shows the site where an American B-17 bomber crashed on June 23, 1944, claiming the life of Lt. David Kingsley and seven Bulgarians on the ground.

Thanks for the suggestion. But perhaps you are thinking of the German POW camp on Hill Road. The Japanese internment camp - or segregation center as some call it - was located about 7.5 miles southeast of Tulelake, on the east side of Highway 139.

An eerie place to drive through - abandoned mansions, deluxe landscaping...

If you go for a swim, wear a pea-green bathing suit. And, when it "blooms" around the end of August it smells awful! :o

A bit of a mystery here. It appears that most of this old juniper tree died and rotted away long ago. Two separate sections of the trunk retain narrow strips of live tissue that support a few branches.

Sadly, we found in August 2011 that the old house at the Trout Creek Ranch had burned down.

This is a beautiful photo, but most of the trees pictured look like they are younger, not "old growth", and the satellite photo looks like this is an old burn or has been cut over.

Dryland production of rye yields a meager harvest in this area where annual precipitation measures only about a dozen inches. Nearby irrigated parcels produce 10 times as much grain. The farmer planted this crop primarily for use by deer and birds.
