Oct 28, 2014 - Eagle Lake...
As I mentioned in the last post, after departing Medford, Oregon we spent three nights camped on the south shore of Eagle Lake, approximately 16 miles north of Susanville, CA and 105 miles north of Reno, NV.

Oct 27, 2014 - Traveling I-5 & more...
Running a few days behind in posting but thought I would share pics taken on our rainy drive on I-5 through a portion of California, not counting the Burney Falls photos I shared last time. I had forgotten what a pull I-5 is, especially around the Mt Shasta area. It was raining & the clouds were very low so we couldn't even see the mountain on this drive.

God bless all our military men and women, we appreciate you very much! We hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day. We are in Burney Falls, California at the McArthur Burney Falls Memorial State Park. The park is huge with over 910 acres and absolutely beautiful!

It is hard to believe this massive waterfall pours out an average of 100-million gallons of water per day. The 129-foot waterfall has been called one of the most...Jump to full entry
