Hard to believe, but yes it’s time once again to begin focusing our attention on tourism this summer in Plumas County and the ever-so-important impact it has on our local economy.

With that in mind, we are already working on Feather Publishing Co.’s annual Plumas County Visitors Guide —it’s actually a work in progress all year long.
