We are HERE.
We were able to maintain our flight routes north to Redding, California despite knowing that we would not be visiting or sleeping in Lassen Volcanic National Park. After a Chinese feast at Peter Chu's Sky Room, we ventured off in the bus for Burney Falls which, according to Teddy Roosevelt, should be considered the 8th Wonder of the World and California's most spectacular waterfall. It was a gorgeous autumn day to take a mile hike up, down and around the falls, with gold leaves falling from the trees and late afternoon sun warming our faces. Our replacement lodging was found in McCloud, California, a pretty and historic mill town at the base of Mount Shasta. No rented sheets and coin-operated showers here, and the after-dinner entertainment was Dan the Piano Man, delighting Parkwest pilots yet again!
