Made it all the way to Red Bluff on Friday night, and now we’re in Weed. Because I know you’re thinking it, Wikipedia says:
It was raining pretty much the whole way from Red Bluff to Mount Shasta, until we got to Dunsmuir when the rain became snow. Apparently we’re in the middle of a pretty big snowstorm, with 1-4 inches expected by the end of the day, and up to 10 inches tomorrow!
So the downside is we won’t be taking any stunning photos of Mount Shasta (the mountain), but on the upside, we’ll have lots of fresh powder to go tromping around in tomorrow. We’d planned to do more today, but the rain and snow made the getting here slow going, and well, it’s vacation. We slept in today. So after getting the skinny on snowshoe rentals in Mount Shasta (the city), we ended up heading to the movie theater to see Coraline. And tonight we’re in Weed for its lovely Motel 6.
