The Old Chimney.

Old Chimney - Revered Landmark

There is an old chimney on the side of California Highway 36, just outside the little town of Westwood. Some old ladies formed a charitable group called The Chimney Fund. They decorate the chimney for most holidays throughout the year.

From Susanville, Ca, take Calif. Highway 36 west. From Red Bluff, Ca, take Calif. Highway 36 east.

Nice, but what we'd really like is a photo of the old ladies decorating the chimney. Do they get up on a 20-ft. ladder?
