Mt. Shasta in June
Last week we headed up to the little town of Mt. Shasta. Wandered the New Age shops, ate lunch, sipped cappuccino in the book store. In other words, had a great time. Before heading home we decided to get a little closer to the glistening snow that blankets the great mountain. So got directions at the local tea shop and off we went, up the mountain. Finally had to stop at a little over 6000' as the road was closed at that point. The air was crisp and cool, about 20* cooler then in Shasta town. Blazing sunshine made the snow glisten and a good time was had by all. We had our granddaughter Ashlee along, who got a short reprieve from work to join us for nearly 2 weeks. This was our last outing with her before she had to head back home. Plus took along our Tai Chi buddy Jeanie. Of course before long Grandpa and Ashlee were lopping snowballs. :) It was a wonderful daytrip all the way around.
