June 2009

Last weekend the weather kept us guessing if it was going to remain spring like or summer….but we all know around here in Redding you can have both at the same time.

The last day of spring slipped away but not without leaving us a few nice showers and a little hail here and there about the valley floor and on up into the mountains.

Below are a few of snapshots of the last day of spring including a triple rainbow that I just barely got a glimpse of with the camera. The rest are of the interesting sunset that soon followed.

The highway 44 section of the Sacramento River Trail from Hilltop at Dana Dr. to Turtle Bay is noticeably taking shape. Concrete pours at Hilltop show the entrance clearly defined. When you take the I-5 to 44 exit into town you can see the creative concrete works showing bicyclist zipping along the trail sculpted into the retaining wall of the underpass.

It will be interesting to how this portion of the trail will be used as it will be the most direct access to downtown for pedestrians. I have always imagined a gondola system that stretched from the top of the bluff out over the Sacramento River into downtown….to me that would be more fun than a glass toped bridge to nowhere.

Witnesses claimed to have seen up to 50 of the mystery bright beams at around 11.30pm in Huntingdon.

Scott Boswell, 37, a former pilot and soldier from nearby Hinchingbrooke, captured some of the lights on his camera.

Mr Boswell, a banker in the City of London, said: “I noticed three lights floating past our house, probably a couple of kilometres away, and thought nothing of it.
