Indian Valley (11/6/12) Jeff Luke Titcomb
75 – 100% – Indian Valley – Color spotter Jeff Luke Titcomb reports the Indian Valley, southeast of Lake Almanor is “at peak color right now.”
This scenic mountain meadow was so named in 1851 for the large number of native Maidu people living there. Greenville is the largest town in the valley. Other communities include Taylorsville, Crescent Mills and Canyon Dam.
The valley is considered to be one of the best places in Plumas County for a scenic drive, due to its being surrounded by mountains, its tree-lined meadow and ranches, old barns and grazing cattle.
