California: Plumas County claims fall color crown this weekend

Posted on October, 25 2014

If you haven’t explored California’s Shasta Cascade region, this is a great time to go. Fall colors are reported to be at peak or approaching peak in Plumas, Lassen and Siskiyou counties, areas in the northern part of the state rich in national forests and parklands.

The color show is in full force in places south of Susanville, says the Awesome Autumn report run by Plumas County’s tourism council.

One recommended route starts in the town of Quincy where an English maple whose “orangeish/pinkish leaves were at peak” this week, the report says.

The drive continues along winding back roads to La Porte (population 26) to see the yellow glow of big-leaf maples and the red tones of dogwood along the way. 

The Plumas County Fall Color Tour Map is handy for planning a road trip and identifying leaves and trees. In this area, willows and black cottonwoods also bring out the gold; Indian rhubarb and mountain dogwood add reddish-orange tinges.

When you’re in the vicinity of the Merlion Park and One Fullerton, it’s hard to miss out on the iconic symbol, regarded as the pride of Singapore. The sweeping views from the Merlion Park across the expansive Marina Bay area are worth to visit.

California: Century-old castle in Pacifica opens for public tours

Posted on October, 22 2014

For more than a century, a castle designed as a refuge from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake has stood in Pacifica, Calif. The fortress-like building with views of the ocean has turrets, towers and 24 renovated rooms that now are open once a month for tours.

Known informally as Sam’s Castle, it was built by San Francisco attorney Henry Harrison McCloskey (grandfather of former California Rep. Pete McCloskey) who wanted a place that wouldn’t tumble in a quake. The family moved in in 1908.

The castle off Highway 1 changed hands several times before Sam Mazza spotted it in 1959 and bought it for $ 29,000, according to a timeline on the castle’s website. Mazza, who painted and restored San Francisco theaters and other buildings, kept it for 43 years and filled it with kitschy furnishings.

“Sam Mazza’s passion for collecting led him to acquire antique furniture, a jade and black lacquer screen once owned by William Holden, stained glass windows, Tiffany lamps, delicate china and even swords,” Bridget Oates writes in the book “Sam’s Castle.” And yes, there’s a knight of armor too.

Mazza never lived there but he did entertain at the castle. He died in 2002, and the Sam Mazza Foundation took over and keeps the castle as its headquarters. Over the years, it had been many things — a speakeasy called Chateau Lafayette during Prohibition, a U.S. Coast Guard barracks, an artist’s studio — and even claims to have a few ghosts.

Retreat.guru zeros in on spiritual and wellness getaways, info

Posted on October, 20 2014

Forget about your latest overindulgence. There are yoga and wellness retreats all over the world that have better views than your local gym.

Name: Retreat.guru

What it does: This website lists 6,751 spiritual and wellness retreats, centers and teachers in 58 countries and 785 cities, including Bali, British Columbia, California, Colorado, Costa Rica and Peru.

What’s hot: Although the retreat destinations are compelling — a seven-day women’s surf and yoga vacation in Bali or a yoga getaway in the Sacred Valley of Peru — the site also allows you to discover teachers and destinations you might not have heard about. Scroll down to the “Hot Topics” section on the home page and find key categories such as Meditation, Travel Retreat, Yoga Teacher Training, Plant Medicine or Wellness Retreat.

What’s not: There are teacher reviews, but I couldn’t find reviews for retreats or centers. As a newbie to the retreat world, I wanted to read more about travelers’ experiences. When you tap on a destination in the “Top Locations” section, the retreats are numbered, but it’s unclear what the number ranking means. I would prefer user reviews.
