Change in Plans

I had been planning on visiting the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest but plans have changed. The pines are at an altitude above 10,000′ and the air at that altitude is just too thin for me. I’ve been sucking wind for the past few days because most of my time is being spent about 7000′. I also noticed the weather report for my planned return of Friday/Saturday is predicting a nasty storm. I’ve decided I’ve seen enough and am headed home and should be there tomorrow. At this time I am sitting in a real nice hotel room in Red Bluff. The drive from June Lake was extremely tiring as I took a “short cut” that had lots of road construction, several passes over 7000′ and narrow roads. I must say it was a beautiful drive – just a long drive.

    I spent 9 of my first 10 years in Red Bluff.
    We used to drive around Lassen park on Sunday afternoons for fun, great place!
