Mt. Shasta

We arrived in Lakehead, California yesterday, taking winding CA Rt. 199 over the Sierras to the Mt. Shasta area.  Today we drove up to the highest open point of Mt. Shasta, Bunny Flat at 6,950 feet.  We had a snowball fight, even though it was 61 degrees.  At 14,160 feet high, it is the highest point in California.  There are hundreds of people here today, awaiting the solar eclipse tonight at 6:20 p.m. We also stopped in Dunsmuir and took a trail to Hedge Creek Falls. By the time we got back to our RV at Antler's Campground in Lakehead at 3 p.m., it was 81 degrees.
