What's the attraction: Moaning Cavern has the
largest vertical chamber in any of the California cavern systems
open to the public. The 45-minute walking tour takes visitors down
234 steps deep under the ground, where you can see fascinating rock
formations and learn about thousands of years of California history
and an even longer span of geology. But, as intriguing as the
walking tour is, that’s not the best part.

Established in August 1869, Lodi was born when the Central
Pacific Railroad laid its tracks over the untamed, oak-studded
brush land near the Mokelumne River.
The pioneer town that developed around that rail stop grew
steadily. Lodi was first known for grain and watermelons in the
late 1800s, and then it became known for Tokay grapes and finally
Zinfandel grapes and fine wine.
Throughout its agricultural evolution over the decades, Lodi
also grew as a city rich in local history. Lodi is fortunate to
have many historical sites still visible to appreciate today.

It was nearly noon. The time had come.
They’d been swimming around in a giant stainless steel tank on
the back of a truck for nearly two hours.
Now, they’d be piped into a holding net — all 300,000 of them —
where they could rest before their odyssey began.

unforgiving waters of the California Delta.
The Chinook fingerlings’ release Tuesday near the Antioch Bridge
was a turning point. The end of life in their aquatic nursery, the
Mokelumne River Hatchery.

Just south of Lodi is a city where you can visit massive
Buddhist statues and see Carrie Underwood perform in the same day,
where you can browse the Internet and listen to an acoustic show at

whether it is live music or the arts.
