====== All About Redding ====== ====== All About Redding ======
-Redding (Meg's hometown) is a small city of around 100,000 people nestled at the foothills of the Cascade and Trinity mountains. It's 540 miles north of Los Angeles and 150 miles north of Sacramento - so it's the __real__ Northern California!+Redding (Meg's hometown) is a small city of around 100,000 people

-Average temperatures in Redding in July are HOT - but, as they say, "it's a dry heat." It can be as cool as 68<sup>o</sup> and as hot as 100<sup>o</sup> plus, so bring your shorts and flip-flops! Thankfully, all the wedding venues will be indoors, so we'll be well air-conditioned.+Average temperatures in Redding in July are HOT - but, as they say,

-If you're into outdoorsy/nature activities, Redding's got a lot to offer. Drive to the north, east, and west for about an hour each way, and you'll be in the mountains. If you like hiking or mountain climbing, Mt. Shasta is a great place for both. Lassen Volcanic National Park is to the east, and offers some spectacular views and really cool geological activity to witness - it’s a still active (though sleeping) volcano! If you're more into water recreation, there's Shasta Lake just to the north or Whiskeytown Lake about 15 minutes to the west. Swimming, water-skiing, sailing, houseboating - all are available. If you're looking for a great place to get away from the heat and step back in time a bit, Weaverville is your best bet.+If you're into outdoorsy/nature activities, Redding's got a lot to
