Leaving Mount Shasta Heading South

Leaving Mount Shasta on the backroads

Within an hour or so we came upon a huge area scarred by forest fires. It went on for many miles in all directions as far as the eye could see. But as you can see, there is life coming again -- see the mossy green color at the lower left of the picture! Hope springs eternal.

This is becoming a typical view! Just another beautiful mountain road!

To get where we are going, we had to drive into Nevada and back out again. How much the terrain changed along the way! This was north of Reno.
The train seemed camouflaged in the golden landscape.

Most of the towns en route looked a lot like this one, on the outskirts of Reno.

This was the sweetest town of all of them today -- Carson Valley.
Old fashioned lampposts, hanging baskets of flowers... very nice!

This was a beautiful area -- lush with a river running through it. It is known as Antelope Valley.

And Topaz Lake, the first of several lakes in the area.

We're getting closer to our destination. Stay tuned to take a tour of the June Lake Loop with us...
