Labor Day loop

Happy Labor Day!
Michael has been picking up veggie oil this last month up around Lassen Park and at the county fair. On this trip he got oil in Mt. Shasta, McCloud and in Mineral—about 40 gallons after we burned about 22 gallons on our loop.
We started off in 108 degree heat and ended up above Mt. Shasta. On the way we walked to gorgeous Mossbrae Falls along the tracks in Dunsmuir.
The next day we visited the falls along the McCloud River and camped in the woods. We biked on a trail that extends along the river for many miles, enjoying a dip in this beautiful little pond. Last night we camped on the backside of Mt. Lassen. It was freezing and blowing the powdery dust of late summer all night. Quite a change from when we left. Even when we got home it was still cool and comfortable and a real relief.
