|our lunch spot view of Mt. Shasta|
We have a lovely and private campsite in the woods with full hookups and only a quiet train occasionally disrupting our peace.
We had hoped that being in the woods would help lower the temperature a bit, but it definitely hasn't.
We decided to take an autohike (the only way to see the scenery with air conditioning) around a few of the arms of Shasta Lake. I was in the office trying to get a map of the area when an old timer (no comments please.....) passing by suggested a couple drives that he enjoys. We took one of the dirt roads and found the "special" place he talked about.
Unfortunately for us someone else had discovered it and had set up a tent right beside the creek so we had to content ourselves with views from the jeep and then continued up along the rutted, dirt shelf road. Beautiful spot and a great ride, but it was still plenty hot.
Well, I'm going to stop here, the internet has slowed to a crawl and its time for bed. Check back tomorrow?
