Shasta Lake continued......

Yesterday we tried to find a cool spot by the creek to relax and chill out, but our efforts were thwarted because we weren't the first people to find "the spot".    We left the shady dirt road and drove slowly along the shores of Shasta Lake until we found a place we could get down to the water.

We just love this jeep.    It always takes us exactly where we want to go with no complaints.     We found the perfect place to drive off the road and down to the water's edge in a relatively shallow spot.



Not too shallow, however.    As Lewis followed his ball into the water, he couldn't wade in, he had to swim.    No problem says Lew.....he'll go anywhere for that ball!




We spent a hour or so at the water's edge, but the the terrible heat eventually enveloped us there as well and we couldn't wait to get back into the cool jeep for the ride home.     Love those leather jeep seats too.....water and sand just wipes right off when a soaking wet poodle jumps in the back seat.

Today, another triple digit day, we decided to check out some water falls in the area.    I did tell you that we were water people, didn't I?     We saw Upper Falls,  Middle Falls, Lower Falls (on the McCloud River), Hedge Creek Falls in Dunsmuir and then Sioux Falls.....the latter wasn't pretty but resulted in no serious damage.    More tomorrow.

  1. I'm sure Lew was wondering what you were doing as he watched all that water go by. He was saying thank goodness we finally stopped:) Glad you are enjoying your new Jeep. They certainly are wonderful vehicles and take the worry out traveling wherever you want to go:)

  2. The McCloud River is one of our favorite spots to go camping. The waterfalls are so lovely and there are some wonderful places to get into the water for cooling off. Your new Jeep sounds like it's working out perfectly for the three of you. :-) I think you're in for a few more days of triple digits—stay cool!

  6. I can't believe how hot it is every where - so nice to have an air conditioned Jeep that can take us where we want to go! The lake side looks like an ancient stadium. Very cool.
