The Deadfall Lakes and Mt Eddy
By Jim Broshears
In a sea of smoke from last month’s wildfires, my wife Cyd and I ventured forth to find an island of clarity. Luck was with us as we took the short trek to the Deadfall Lakes nestled in the bowl of the “Eddys” west of Mt Shasta.
This was an opportunity for Cyd to try out her new Osprey Ariel 55 backpack and our move toward lighter loads. Our goal was to get Cyd’s load down to about 20 lbs including water and food. She has a 3 lb Sierra Designs sleeping bag and 9 oz Klymit ground pad. added to a 4lb 14 oz backpack for a core gear weight of about 8 lbs. We kept our meals simple and easy using my Jetboil stove and some Mountain House dinners. Adding in clothing, water, some food, and essentials, the total was about 22 lbs.
Looking over the PCT in the late afternoon
The Deadfall Lakes are on the Pacific Crest Trail north of Castle Crags and southeast of the Marble Mtns. This is a great backpack trip for beginners and families.
Is solar electric right for you? You’ve probably thought about solar energy…especially with the sun blazing the way it is, but did you know that alternative energy is a solid investment of your money? There are incentives in the form of rebates and tax credits offered by both state and local governments. You can completely or partially offset your utility bill. On a tiered meter, like PG&Es typical residential rates, a partial offset can save large amounts of money by keeping the usage down in the lower tiers.
There are solar panel companies springing up everywhere, but do you go to the new start up, or consult with a company that’s grown up with the industry and seen it go from pieced together systems to well developed, highly efficient solar installation kits? Top Hat Energy is such a company. They have been selling, designing and installing solar electric systems for over 10 years. Top Hat also offers pre-designed kits that can be modified, off-grid installations, residential grid-tie and commercial grid-tie solar installations.
There are plenty of good reasons to “Go Solar”. A few from Top Hat’s Top Ten reasons for adding solar power:
• You become immune from rate hikes. You can “freeze” your utility rates where they are by offsetting your power bill fully.
• You gain non-taxable green equity.
• You can purchase a solar system without changing your monthly budget, no extra monthly costs.
• Solar modules require no maintenance. A fixed mount solar grid tie system does not ever need maintenance.
• Solar energy reduces our dependency on foreign oil.
• It’s good for the environment. Solar electricity produces no emissions at all.
Top Hat Energy is listed with the CEC as a dealer and installer, which is necessary for customers to receive the rebates that are available under the CSI program and for Top Hat Energy to retail the equipment. It is also licensed with the state of CA as a C-10 electrical contractor, necessary for installing solar, wind, and hydro. Top Hat Energy offers wholesale equipment sales and design nationally and internationally in solar energy products. Top Hat Energy designs, manages, and installs residential and commercial solar systems.
Top Hat Energy evolved from Top Hat Chimney Sweep back in 1978. Along the way, founder Terry Hufft added woodstoves and pellet stoves to his business and then getting into solar and wind energy, eventually offering the solid, clean built-to-last style that we see in utility tied systems today.
Located in the heart of the north State, Chicoâ€™s proud culture, location and economy have made it home to one of Northern Californiaâ€™s most unique cities. Though a self-determining small-town feel remains, Chico has become the premier location for business, culture and recreation in the north state. In addition, Chico is home to one of Californiaâ€™s most distinguished state universities â€“ commonly known as Chico State.
Resting 90 miles north of Sacramento, Chico is home to over 80,000 residents. To the west and south of the city youâ€™ll find mainly fields, plains and agricultural crops, and to the north and east, the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.
Chico locals have taken pride in their surrounding wilderness, preserving a large portion of it for Bidwell Park. As the Park winds like a miniature Grand Canyon into the foothills, it becomes one of the largest city parks in the country. Though surrounding areas are spectacular, Chico inner city boasts a diverse population of trees; thus, earning its nickname, The City of Trees.
Known to be a college town, Chicoâ€™s rich culture has become a hotspot for many events: live performances frequent both indoor and outdoor stages; in the summer, Thursday night market transforms downtown into a carnival like atmosphere; the Chico Outlaws, a minor-league baseball team, entertains many of the hot summer nights; and the nightlife keeps the streets alive well into the morning.
With a strong sense of community and culture, Chicoâ€™s businesses â€“ from restaurants to bicycle cabs â€“ have come to support and thrive on the active people that are proud to call Chico their home.
