From Southern Utah to the Panhandle in Idaho, Courtnie Erickson has lived in what she believes are the best (and the most beautiful!) areas in the country. She graduated with a journalism degree from Utah State University and has more than 15 years of professional writing experience.

Here in Northern California, we are well-known for our stunning redwood forests, which attract thousands of individuals each year. While you can always drive, hike, or ride a Railbike through these remarkable woods, during August and September 2022, you can travel on a restored 1909 steam engine. As part of Skunk Train’s Days of Steam, this bucket-list-worthy journey takes you through the heart of the forest and makes you feel like you’ve stepped decades into the past. It is a unique way to explore the woods and is a one-of-a-kind adventure that you won’t soon forget!
You can learn more about the Days of Steam adventure and the Railbike excursions on the Skunk Train website and Facebook page.
