Mount Shasta is a beautiful place. I guess if you have to go away on business, this is an awesome place to go.
Seth enjoyed hikes along the manzanita lined trails, skipping stones on the lake, collecting various lichens and mosses, and just running through the trails while the cold mountain air rustled through the treetops. This is one of the great joys of homeschooling. Time away from the books just isn't on the weekends. Anytime during the week, we can escape the routine to catch up on some recreation.
The bees buzzed around us sampling the abundant nectar of the manzanita blossoms.
The weather and the landscape made the entire experience worth every inconvenience of having to drive the winding, twisting path of Hwy. 36 to get there.
