After about 20 miles I reached Red Bluff on got on California Highway 99 South. With slower speed limits and a lot less of 18 wheelers, it’s a lot less stressful and more pleasant drive through miles of fruit orchards. It goes through a number of small towns with an occasional traffic light…

Most of yesterday’s travel was on U.S. Highway 99 which passes through miles of fruit orchards…much better than the alternate of Interstate Highway 5…

Approaching Anderson I spotted Mount Shasta 65 miles away. I grabbed my camera and manged to get this neat shot even though I was driving…

DSC06949

 

Arriving at Anderson, California I parked at the rear of very friendly VFW Post#9650 for the night. I’ve been stopping here for several years. They even provided me with a 30 amp electrical hookup so I could run my air conditioner to deal with the 93 degree temperature. Many thanks for another enjoyable stay…

And here’s the usual dinette window photo…

Outside it was 93 in the shade and 99.5 in the sun. It was a comfortable 78 degrees inside the motorhome thanks to my a/c.

 

I’ll depart later this morning.
