It has been a busy week for me starting off with driving to San Francisco!
Yes…it was a marathon week driving to and from San Francisco in one day and twice in one week!
The advantages of getting stuck in S.F. traffic!
Back on the home front…These geese were honking away!
Did you know The “giant” Canada Goose, Branta canadensis maxima, bred from central Manitoba to Kentucky but was nearly driven extinct in the early 1900s. Programs to reestablish the subspecies to its original range were in many places so successful that the geese have become a nuisance in many urban and suburban areas.
Now is a great time to visit beautiful Castle Crags.
There are many trails and a short paved path to Castle Crags overlook. For more information, check out my book, “Mount Shasta Guide to Fun.”
I love this view point of Mt. Shasta taken from the Castle Crags Lookout. See the Lady on the Mountain? Look at the next picture for a sketching of it.
Sunday’s Ski Adventure…
The last day of last week Sunday was rewarding with a ski over on the east side of Mt. Shasta.
We were able to drive within a 1/2 mile or so to the Brewer Creek trail head. The walk up to snow was only 15 minutes up the drainage.
To our disappointment the snow surface was not smooth. As Gerald Spini says, “as rough as a cobb”. Lower down it was better but sticky.
Ski season is melting away. It’s time to start thinking about hiking!
Have a great week everyone!
