Shasta and Lassen
Well, I'm heading into being 64--thus the finger signs here at the old ski bowl at Mt. Shasta. We skied from Bunny Flat to the ski bowl by the road which is still closed at 7000 feet. The ski area was closed after a series of avalanches and because the road was hard to keep plowed plus it edges a sacred spring of the Wintu people. We stayed up there and watched the constantly changing clouds over the summit for a long time.
We ate lunch quite comfortably on an abandoned snow mobile and Sasha and Michael had to mug for the camera.
I got good views of mountain bluebirds fly catching regular looking flies along the snow line... something I'd never seen before.
