Long weekends are meant for packing the car and traveling towards the mountains for some much needed downtime. I like to escape the Monday through Friday 9 - 5 routine. Allowing myself to regenerate my mind, body and soul. I feel that I become more inspired for the next week, next project and build new ideas for the blog.
As a young child I remember traveling up to Plumas County, for three day weekends to visit family. The small down of Chester is home to many shops and boutiques.
My favorite owned by my Grandfather is Morning Star Log Furniture. He makes custom log furniture anything you can dream of he can make it happen. My second favorite stop for a mid day pick me up is the Coffee Station housed in an old auto body garage. Two great spots for an afternoon scoop of ice cream would be Lassen Gift Company & Soda Fountain or travel around the lake to Paul Bunyan Resort for a frosty.
This small town located on State Route 36 is definitely one to stop through and enjoy some shops and local treats.
