Mc Queen

For some years now, on this first weekend of June, I’ve loaded up with other women to drive to McCloud for the Celebration of our Queen Weezie’s 50th birthday. This year was her 9th annual 50th birthday.
I think this year, more than any other time, I’ve just been amazed by the talent, magic, humor, hard work, political devotion, creativity and of course, beauty, of the group of women who gather to celebrate the flame of Weezie’s life.
My photos tell the story of spring not finished as McCloud is at elevation and in the shadow of Mt. Shasta. They also would like to tell of a community ravaged by doubts about its future as multinational giant Nestle is trying to tap (steal) their water to bottle and sell. (Since their mill closed tourism just doesn’t cut it to employ the small populace.) It’s a real crisis that divides the town. Meanwhile, it is a wonderful place to visit and make play in.
