Choose Chico Weekend

I have been out of the loop for the past few days. As part of our college search for my daughter we went to visit CSU Chico in Northern California. They have a "Choose Chico" weekend complete with campus tours and meeting department heads and instructors. Annika got to meet with her major advisor and department head one on one. Simply amazing. The campus was lush and beautiful with Bidwell Creek flowing right through the middle of campus. Pretty smart of their administration to choose a beautiful spring day for this event before the summer valley heat starts up! Chico has a population of close to 80,000 people but the downtown area has a very nice small town feel to it. Some really good restaurants too as we found out. Lenore and Annika left me for four hours in our hotel to go dress shopping. With not many areas close by to release my creative outlets I made some sad looking images of our hotel. The hotel staff was a bit overwhelmed with all of the weekend guests and there were a few dishes that sat in the hallways for two days! We made one stop on the way home in Upper Lake, Ca where I photographed the town clock. My how time flies! God's love and blessings to all, chris All images photographed with a Canon 7D and a Canon 28- 135 IS lens
