The Covid-19 Tales: Visiting The State Of Jefferson

A few photos from our photo adventure to the "State of Jefferson" (Shasta, Lassen County) near the California/Oregon border.


The "State of Jefferson" was the name coined by a group of land owners near the California/Oregon border who wanted to succeed from the State of California.
