      Not only is this a great sign, I don't remember seeing much color in Yreka when I was there 20 years ago (in the heat of the summer) so I'm sure it really stands out!

      Hey Thor - It does get mighty warm and dry in the summer months. We've got trips through there in August and September this year so it'll be interesting to see how much different it looks.

      Man, that is truly neat. the little "atom" at the top, too much.

      I wonder if the starburst at the top of the sign was once more elaborate than it is today. Hard to tell if it was originally designed this way, or if the bars at the top were possibly once thicker and had more of a design to them.

      Regardless, great pic.

      professionalwannabe - Good question. I've seen some similar to this with wiring and bulbs at the end but this one looks like it might have always been this simple.

      Glad you enjoyed seeing it!

      Ken - Hope you had a great trip. Yreka is a neat little town with a ton of history. They've got a great little history museum too.
