After leaving Redding California we continued driving South for about 30 min. until we arrived in Corning, California (about 100 miles North of Sacramento). We ended up staying at the Rolling Hills Casino RV park for 2 days since the price was right, and Brandy was ready for a little break from the constant driving. The price for staying at the RV park is $35.00 per night with full hook ups, showers, internet, dog boarding, access to the motel, and lodge swimming pools, and for the younger ones, there is an arcade in the casino with most of the games $0.25 per game play.
If your not familiar with the town of Corning, this town is the biggest producer in the United States for olives, and boy do they have a lot of them. If you are passing by, take a trip to the Olive Pit. This place has 120 different types of olives, some amazing jams, and spreads. Yes, there are free samples on all of there olives also. Once we left, we decided to just keep driving and ended up in the country to a big olive with a toothpick in it. Wasn’t what we were expecting to see out in the middle on nowhere, but these are the things usually found in weird locations. We then turned around until we came across a sign pointing to a state park on the Sacramento River that we decided to check out and found it to be quite interesting. We came back to the RV park, ate lunch, and went swimming. This has been a great adventure to see this town and all of us have learned so much about it… mainly olives. We will be pushing to get to Placerville, Ca. tomorrow to see an old friend of the family. Stay with us as we travel on.
