The smoke is gone… Well not quite, as occasionally the wind blows what’s left of the Carr & Hirz Fires’ smoke up here. Most days are like this now, though. I could see Castle Crags from our parking lot, and it’s nice to be able to breathe easy again. The weather has cooperated, also, we’re seeing highs in the high 80’s the past three days.
Fish are biting; I don’t fish myself, but at a recent stop to “eat riverside” at the Dunsmuir City Park & Botanical Gardens, I watched a guy catch one while I was eating. A day later, while showing a guest lower McCloud Falls, we watched six guys walk down and drop lines. Within minutes they were all catching fish of various sizes! It was a great show for my friend who was from Montana, and said that the area reminded her of home.
Lake Siskiyou still has boats for rent: take a leisure ride with a sweeping, post card view of Mount Shasta. Or to get the same shot as 101 things guide, ask Eric @ the Dunsmuir Lodge where to go…
