A series of views of the Shasta Dam spillway running at high water release I captured on Feb 12 2017. This water flows into the Sacramento River. I believe the flow was around 70,000 cubic feet per second at this point.
I think this was about the same time that state officials became seriously concerned about the Oroville Dam. Shasta looks solid, though. Click to enlarge:
A TV station in Medford Oregon called and asked permission to use my footage of the Shasta Dam spillway, which I found to be gratifying. I asked them to attribute it to Really Redding.
A view of my favorite city beneath a snowbound Lassen Peak. Taken from a friend’s home in West Redding. And look for Redding’s big flag in the lower middle. Thank you Enterprise Lion’s Club for maintaining Redding’s iconic big flag!

Below, the Sundial Bridge from the same vantage point. You don’t often see the bridge juxtaposed with Best Buy, but here it is.
Went to Caldwell Park to take pictures, when I witnessed some of our local Guardian Angels as they encountered a man and a woman in a heated argument.
As the woman stormed off, the Angels followed, making it clear they were there to help if needed. While I’m sure most of us would rather be spending a snowy Saturday sitting by the fire, these citizens go walking around looking for good deeds to accomplish. Very inspiring. Carry on, Guardian Angels. You’re Really Redding.
They were lined up out the door in the rain today to get fresh crab from R&R Meats and Seafood in Redding. My ticket number was about a hundred away. Still, everyone was cheerful and wishing one another a Merry Christmas, while CJ and his crew worked swiftly and with purpose. A guy in line offered to buy my bag of crabs on the way out the door, lol!
A crab cracking Christmas is Really Redding. Merry Christmas to you all, and to R&R Meats and Seafood. #ThisisRedding
This Map of Redding from 1890 matches up well with satelite imagery borrowed from Google Earth. I did these frames some time ago, but finally got around to animating them.

Being a rail town on a river, things still line up very well. Except now you can see the train tracks turn north over the river, since they built Shasta Dam. The Redding Cemetery is easy to see. The sawmill became the Posse Grounds. Looks like our city hall was once a horse racing track!
Deakins Riverside Farm became Turtle Bay and The Garden Tract. I wonder iffarmer Deakin had any inkling that he had probably the most valuable real estate in Redding’s future. That stretch of river holds so much promise, still.
I love old maps. I don’t recall how I came across this specific one. If you like this sort of thing, check out this 1872 map of Redding overlay I posted in 2011.
This version of the 1890 Map of Redding came from the Shasta County Library site. The building is the old courthouse in Redding that no longer exists. You can click this to to enlarge also.
