|We regretted leaving such a piece of paradise as Diamond Lake. The beauty of the area is so incredibly magical-towering firs,mystic blue lakes, jagged mountain peaks,azure blue skies dotted with cotton clouds-one could go on and on. The drive to Mt. Shasta was the terminus of our time in Oregon this year and we bid it a fond farewell and treasure our many memories there. The snow covered peak of Mt.Shasta stood as our stately guide as we drove to the town of Mt. Shasta and our overnight stay at our same RV park we spent a week at in July. We arrived mid-day and accomplished several errands. We had dinner at Trinity-a mediterranean cafe. It was delicious and light-pacific salmon. Tomorrow we leave for Lake Almanor-a tougher drive into wilderness near Mt. Lassen.
