This Little Known Natural Oasis Is Hiding In Northern California… And You’re Going To Love It

Did you know Northern California has an oasis 50 miles east of Mt. Shasta called Fall River Valley? Dozens of cold water springs bubble to the surface creating an oasis for both plant and animals. We’ve included a few photos and one kick butt video to show you why we love it here. The fall river meanders through a valley full of cattle ranches and scenery that leaves you breathless. It’s over 21 miles of river that eventually dumps into the Pitt River. If you haven’t come up this way for a visit, what are you waiting for? It’s an oasis worth your time. We promise.

As far as oases go, we think this one is the bomb. But, I’m sure there are more than a few of you who won’t be able to keep from sharing where we should’ve highlighted a few spots. Go ahead, let us know. Is there a hidden oasis that you love more?
