Salmon can no longer make the journey from the Sacramento/San Joaquin delta to the McCloud River, so now people do it.  During the Run4Salmon, the Winnemem Wintu and supporters make a 300 mile prayerful journey from the Bay-Delta to the McCloud, tracing the migratory spawning route of winter-run Chinook salmon.

A natural bridge in the Hayfork Valley of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest is part of the Northern California region’s history.  The bridge is a geologic formation created over time by water forcing a passageway through the soft limestone.
