big Ponderosa Pine (next photo) to hold it upright and hoped it would firm up in this restored position.
On my way back I pondered the statements I find on the various chamber-of-commerce-type websites that promote touring the county to view the fall colors. This on October 21: "We're declaring peak today." And, "Historically, October 21 has been peak color throughout Plumas County." On another website, "Lower Lundy Lake Road - Peak 75 - 100% - definitely peaking. GO NOW."
The elevation in Plumas County varies from just under 2,000' to just over 8,300'. I'm sure it doesn't all peak at the same time. Not even close. And what is this 100%? 100% of what? How can one declare that fall color in a given area is 75% when there's no way to know how bright the colors will get? GO NOW? Nah, it can't be any better than my back yard. Color in my back deck is at 120%! That means it's much better than I expected a week ago.

"Worldly scientists present evolution as fact. Many people simply believe what these scientists say and have never really considered why they believe in evolution. Worldly scientists also present evolution as something everyone believes. For a person not to believe evolution, he must be willing to say that that the majority is wrong. Some people believe evolution only because they do not want to be different or looked down on.
"Satan wants people to believe in evolution. This is probably the main reason that evolution is so popular. Satan is a deceiver (John 8:44), and he wants people to believe that God's word is not true. He keeps the belief in evolution popular because he can use it to lead people away from God."
So, what is a "worldly" scientist? I guess I'll need to research "worldly." Amazing stuff.
