An autumn lenticular, among the first large ones of the season, caps Mount Shasta.
With winter weather nearing, I spent most of the last warm weather getting everything stowed for the winter and splitting firewood. I didn’t get out too much or take advantage of the weather like I wish I could have. Fortunately, here in Mount Shasta, just heading into town leads to great views and opportunities to enjoy spectacular vistas of Mount Shasta. While this was not a great fall color year (too dry I think and not a sharp cold snap, I think) but there were still pockets of color all around the area, especially along the creeks and rivers and where the oaks proliferate. Where the color was, the beauty was enhanced significantly.
Really wet weather is coming in the next few days. I thought it might be nice to collect images I have taken while running around getting stuff done and the few minor trips out I have taken with my kids. Next up in a week or two, I will probably post some snowy pictures or some shots of rain-swollen rivers. Until then, enjoy the last vestiges of autumn!
