Headed out Wednesday shortly before noon for the 5-6 hour dive.
Destination Hat Creek, CA for camping and hang gliding
Wednesday evening was a simpler affair for dinner than is often the case for the 15 years my family and I have been camping here each August. You can click on images for the higher resolution versions.
Thursday morning was a skip breakfast day, hitting the road about an hour north to the McCloud river falls, where we got in some jumps from the rocks and a bit of soaking in about 55 deg water (bet it was far colder in May).
There are some folks who jump the much higher cliffs of the middle and upper falls.
Not quite in the shadow of Mt. Shasta, but pretty close.
Dinner was courtesy of my other brother on site—Swiss Steak—but my photo turned out crappy, so no pic. Breakfast, however, turned out fine.
So this afternoon will be about some flying. Took a trip up to the launch area last evening for some contemplation.
Perfect launch conditions last evening. Just like every evening.
So perhaps a post about flying hang gliders tomorrow. After this evening's fun. As for food, I have about 6-8 pounds of beef roast in the crockpot.
