Friday. Heading south we saw Mount Shasta in the distance. The southern and western sides of Mt Shasta were nearly free of snow, but big glaciers and snowfields were still present on the north and east sides. We drove dirt roads on the east and south sides of the the mountain. We saw Upper Falls on the McCloud River. Then we hiked to see Middle Falls and Lower Falls. We drove to the upper Sacramento River to check the repaired gauge at Cantara and to view the Box Canyon putin, then drove to the town of Dunsmuir, CA.
