Say NO! to the "State of Jefferson"

Some Siskiyou County right-wing extremists want Lake County to support the formation of a "State of Jefferson."

JUNE 4-5 -- Sierra Club Yolano Group Snow Mountain hike/car camp. Snow Mountain is the northern anchor of the newly created Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument.  As one book describes it, “The trip to the twin summits of Snow Mountain offers scenery that includes serene forests of pine and fir, a psychedelic assortment of multihued rocks, and sweeping vistas of mountains and valleys stretching to the far horizons.”  The 8+ mile roundtrip hike climbing 2200’ to the twin peaks above 7000’ certainly provides breathtaking views.  Due to the long drive to trailhead, we will drive to Letts Lake Campground on Saturday, car camp overnight, and climb the mountain from the Summit Springs trailhead and drive home Sunday.  No dogs, rain or snow cancels.  Trip limited to 12 hikers.  For logistical details (food etc.) contact the leader, 530-756-3973 or
