Sunday morning my friend Steve Lewis and myself headed up Diller Canyon located on the west side of Shastina. This area is a rarely visited gem on the lower slopes of Mt. Shasta.  Besides the very challenging drive in, it makes for a great spring ski and during the summer months one can find small waterfalls and wildflowers galore.

I love the drive over to Lassen Volcanic National Park. This area is Lake Britton located at McArthur Burney Falls Memorial State Park. The train trestle you see in the picture was used in the movie, “Stand By Me”.

Thinking about what to do this summer?
