A drive north of us

We took a $4.00 a gallon drive yesterday – not too far from our home – 

This is Rainbow Ridge – in Lakehead. (Lake Shasta) I didn\’t get a photo of how low the water is at Lake Shasta. Upset me. It looks like a Moonscape. 

We found this strange little spot off the side of the road – Rainbow Ridge. 

I wish I knew the whole story about the \”Legend.\” All the postings were bleached out – The Delta and Hirtz fires went through this area a couple of years ago. 

There\’s a mine and then a picnic table – 

Nice!

Came to Dog Creek Bridge. So quiet. 

We decided to turn back around – 

this is a major burn area that has not yet recovered. 

We didn\’t attend the Rodeo on Friday – I gave our tickets to Navy and his wife. He sent me this photo. He said they had fun – it was both a first for them! I have never been to a rodeo either but have promised the husband I will go with him next year. 

We had dry lightning on Friday night – scary for us. So far no fire has been reported however in the dense forests, it sometimes smolders for a few days before it erupts into a huge forest fire. There were many spotter planes and helicopters out, scoping the mountains. We did get some minor drizzle…

    Great pictures. All are good but I love the Dog Creek Bridge picture. It looks like a magazine spread. Our gas is pushing $3. You probably heard of the pipeline problem that affected the Southeast. I have been staying home. Leave the gas for those who have to go to work, etc. Hopefully, there should be plenty of gas soon for everyone.

    Looks like a nice ride in spite of gas being ridiculously expensive!

    Yes I heard. Terrible for those who work or need a vehicle for their jobs.

    I know – we probably shouldn't have but we were bored.
