Lake Shastina – Weed, California

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 85 miles from Anderson to Weed, California.

 

Along the way I passed by Lake Shasta. I cannot ever remember seeing the water level so high. The drought is over…

 

 

 

 

 

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A few more miles up the road Mount Shasta is looking good…

 

 

 

 

I proceeded thru Weed, California (population about 3,000). About five more miles and I parked at a free campground along the shore of Lake Shastina. It’s my first time here…

 

 

 

 

Here’s the usual dinette window photo…

 

 

 

And here’s a 180 degree view from the top of my motorhome…

 

 

 

Here are some other photos I took. Note the building on the top of the hill…

 

 

 

 

Here’s a better view…

 

 

 

 

 

And the trees in the lake…

 

 

 

 

And the hammock between the trees…

 

 

 

 

About 6PM…

 

 

 

 

5:15 this morning with a light rain…

 

 

 

 

Only about five miles from Interstate Highway 5, it proved to be a very quiet and peaceful stay.

 

 

 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

 Yesterday was cloudy and 78 degrees. Forecast for today’s expected destination is cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and 75 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

  1. Lake Shastina is nice. It’s “in my backyard”. On memorial Day we went to McCloud Falls. You are close, and I would highly recommend it. It’s a campground at the middle fall. I am guessing that it is empty, or almost empty now in the middle of the week. There’s three waterfalls, and they are all easily accessed from that campground, within a very short distance.

      Thanks for your comment and tip about McCloud Falls. I’m currently heading North, perhaps sometime in the future.
