California Road Trip Tease

Castle Crags at dawn

Castle Crags at dawn

Castle Crags is an amazing area near Mount Shasta, one which should have great appeal to rock climbers.  Why it isn’t more well known, I have no idea.  Gorgeous stuff.   The photos didn’t come out well due to the low light and lens damage due to a drop by a certain klutzy hiker.

We wandered for a while between 5:30 and 6 a.m. as I blasted from Portland down to the bay area to meet my wife.  I had driven most of the night, and I needed to stretch my legs.  Good choice.   If you are interested in the area, take the exit for Castle Crags State Park a few miles south of Dunsmuir.
