Views from Mt. Shasta. Day after day, the changing seasons of each month offer unique views over the high country of California. It never ceases to amaze me how Mother Earth can change up her pallette so rapidly. This take of the Trinity Alps is so completely different from just a week ago it's hard to believe it's the same view. So grateful to have the smoke gone and thunderclouds everywhere today. We went from 85 degrees F to 65 degrees high F in less than 3 days. Had my first fire in the woodstove this morning and the cats and I enjoyed it immensely. Temperature clocked at 36 degrees low at 5:30 a.m. this morning. Snow on the mountain tops are real and Mt. Ashland opens in 12 weeks or less for sking. Just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you for your very kind and encouraging words during the worst wildfire summer I have ever experienced. They helped me find my way through to the other side. Hoping all of you above the equator have a wonderful autumn full of beautiful leaves and gorgeous pumpkins and those below, a bright spring with the full promise of a beautiful summer. All my relations.

Heading home down the Siskiyou Pass in N. California. Usually one does not think of Interstate Highways as wild and scenic drives, but I 5 that runs thru N. California, Oregon and Washington definetly defies that notion. Here in the upper part of California, skirting the Oregon border, the Siskiyou Mountains, steep passes, and hairpin curves gets your blood jumping just going to the store. Makes for an exciting adventure.

"Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong...Mountain Mamma, West Virginia, take me home country roads.

Trinity Alps in N. California. This massive alpine range extends from Redding all the way to Shasta Valley. It is as rugged as it looks and many a mountain climber has had to turn back due to extreme difficulty. It is home to a massive..huge female Mountain Lion we call Lady Lion, one of the largest I had ever encountered. Surprisingly, she let Charlie Red Hawk Thom and I get a glimpse of her cubs then backed off far away from us. I attributed that to Red Hawks work as a Native American Medicine Man and Ceremonial Leader of the Karuk Tribe, as well as his many many years of traveling the high country. Even so, I was still shaking in my boots some. In this country, it is advised you make noise while you hike to let the bears and mountain lions know your coming. If you encounter a Mountain Lion, get big. Raise your arms, holler, look and sound scary and try to back off. If you have small children with you, pick them up and hold them until you know that animal is not anywhere around, even carrying them out of the area far away.  The very last thing you want to do is run. Don't. It will trigger their instincts to chase you and I promise you cannot out run a bear or a Mountain Lion.

Today..for the first time since June, the temperatures went below 80 degree F. into the 70s. Most of the time it was way over 90 and much of it over 100 degrees. Finally, autumn has come, rain and snow are close and everyone is breathing a sigh of relief. For many of us, our lungs will never be the same, our throats still hurt from the horrible smoke, and eyes still burn. But you just have to be grateful for coming out the other side. Looking forward to snowy mountains and wet fields. Shasta Valley last winter. All my relations.

Locust Trees along the Klamath River. Chinese laborers and gold miners from the 1800s brought these trees to the U. S. due to their high strength. Old fence posts, which you can find almost eveywhere if you scour around, were the main use of these trees. N. California backroads.

Incredible Mt. Shasta of the Cascade Range in N. California. This mountain consists of four overlapping volcanic cones creating a complex shape. Over 14,000 ft. high, the circumference around the base is nearly 70 miles. No photograph in my opinion can ever really show just how enormous this mountain really is. The first time I saw it, I pulled my car off the road and sat mezmerized in complete shock and awe, until a friendly Highway Patrol pulled over and admired it with me before telling me I really needed to move on. All my relations.

SUNRISE this morning over the mountains. What a blessed way to wake up. Tomorrow our autumn comes with much cooler temps and even cold at night in the 30s. Soon snow will be on the mountain tops, the fires will be gone, and this northern country of the Pacific Northwest will have a chance to heal. All my relations.

Huge rocks from several avalances litter the area below the summits on Mt. Shasta. Several years ago many Native American tribes fought a long battle to keep Mt. Shasta from being developed with condos on this same area. Right before the final decision, a huge avalance thundered down the mountain in the exact area these buildings would have been. This great mountain used it's voice to tell the world it too was a sentient being and needed to be respected. All my relations.

Finally, after two months, I could see the Siskiyou Mountains coming down the pass out of Oregon, because the massive smoke from all the fires has begun to clear up. First pic was late this afternoon, second pic is from last week Weds. It's totally crazy in North America right now. Huge earthquake in Mexico over 8 pts. Three hurricanes within two weeks of each other battering the Gulf, East Coast and Carribean, major wildfires in at least 10 states from Montana to California. The smoke from the Pacific Northwest has now reached the East Coast and further following the jet stream. Our Mother Earth is hurting so darn bad, and showing us her hurt. Please give thanks to our home in the cosmos..she needs alot of love these days. All my relations.

Deep canyon of trees on Mt. Shasta in N. California. Scents of pine, sweet flowers, cool air and shades of cedar.  The giant trees on this magnificent mountain are so varied and depend on altitude as to where they grow and live. This last winter nurtured and fed this mountain and you could feel it's happiness.

Thought you might be interested in seeing what almost three months of change on Mt. Shasta can bring. In this case, after a record breaking winter, the road to the highest driving point above Panther Meadow was closed until mid August. The first pic is at Bunny Flat in early June shows the road completely blocked with snow. The second pic is the view yesterday in early September. This was very late in the summer generally for the upper mountain to be open. Record heat the last couple of months helped the snow to melt. Personally, I am grateful for cooler temps and looking forward to a wet winter. All my relations.

It's really hard to shoot such large landscapes without a real camera..but this is Panther Meadow high on Mt. Shasta. This unusual meadow is fed from springs that are absolutely protected and considered sacred by all Native people.  If you zoom in you can see a hiker on the right that helps to give this some scale. In July there was still over 12 ft of snow up here. Hot temps and alot of work got the mountain open mid August. Grateful to be on this magnificent mountain.

Finally made it to the "top" of Mt. Shasta..meaning as far as you can drive to at 7900 ft. The mountain is over 14,000 ft. The first pic is a view from Bunny Flat, second is looking back down the final road above the tree line over to the Trinity Alps. Last is the view up to the top of the volcano. Weather was nice and cool and just a little smoke in the far background. This road just recently opened up in August and Panther Meadow campground still had snow over the bathrooms in July, which lies at over 7300 ft. So grateful to breath in this sacred mountain.

A friend of mine asked me what I mean't when I write "All My Relations".This term is used by Native Americans after prayer or ceremony to show that everything on the Earth is related. We cannot live without trees or rain, solid ground, mountains, deltas, oceans, clouds..etc. These things are literally our family. A biologist by the name of Lewis Thomas describes our bodies as shared, rented and occupied by countless other tiny organisms, without we couldn't move a muscle, drum a finger or think a thought. The planet and the universe is like that. One giant, living, breathing cell with all of's parts linked to symbiosis. For us it's even more critical, Earth would do just fine without humans, but obviously we cannot exist with out Mother Earth, the sun, moons, stars. Speaking of stars, did you know it's a proven fact everything in a star is in us. Very cool thought. All my relations.

For us it's even more critical, Earth would do just fine without humans, but obviously we cannot exist with out Mother Earth, the sun, moons, stars. Speaking of stars, did you know it's a proven fact everything in a star is in us. Very cool thought. All my relations. Scott River thru the Marble Mountain Wilderness. #onlyinnortherncalifornia  #norcalhiking , #blmwild  #mypubliclands , #usinterior 
With all the chaos going on across the globe right now, Mother Nature reminding us who's boss. Communities, landscapes, livelihoods and even countries at risk. It is a necessary reminder to me that the large shifts happening in MY life are simply a blessing. Transitions and change are crucial to personal growth. It's so important to remember a positive state of mind. Be persistent in your search for daily happiness. Wishing you all a safe and adventurous weekend! But mostly, sending carefree vibes of joy.  #MentalHealth

You can see Interstate 5 heading south in this photo taken from the old stage coach road. So grateful for the rain that fell here. Siskiyou Mountains in N. California.

This evening on the Klamath River old stagecoach road heading south. Way to the right is I 5 heading north and the Interstate follows the river for a short time. It was so wonderful to get outside after the rain helped clear some of the smoke. It's the first time in over three months I have been able to open all the windows..make that any windows for some evening breezes. And it's the first time in over three months the temps went below 90 and they have mostly been over 100 f. Things you don't nomally think about until you don't have them at all. So grateful for the wonderful small things and for Mother Earth finally to give us some rain. All my relations.

James Irvine Trail - the smoke cast an orange glow over the forest. #prairiecreekredwoodsstatepark #jamesirvinetrail #rei1440project #optoutside #norcalhiking
RAIN..IT RAINED fast and furious today for a good hour and everyone was out dancing in the rain acting like idiots. The trees let off incredible fragrances and the view from the Klamath River stagecoach road looked like this after the rain. It's a beginning.

HIKING #THEFLUMES WAS ONE OF THE MOST PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL HIKES I HAVE EVER DONE

No words to express my elation for the wind shifting a little and giving me us a small respite from all the smoke this morning. Hoping some rain and cooler temps help get the fires out. Forecast says it probably won't stay clear like this cause there are just too many fires but you take the small blessings with a big heart.Grateful and prayers for Mother Earth.

It's better to have more stories to tell of all the places you've adventured opposed to the stuff you've collected over time to show.

I feel bad leaving my last post showing all the smoke here from wildfires. My friend @grannydot16 wrote me a beautiful post along with several of you and I want to say a big thankyou. Everyone knows life is hard sometime..and for me it's come in bunches. Watching my city I love, Houston, literally go underwater from Hurricane Harvey. Now the East Coast has the largest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean barreling down on them. Lately it seems too much rain and or no rain. So my friend Dot taught me how to find my courage again tonight..and even in smoke their is absolute beauty. This photo is looking out across the street from me..evening colors in the smoke. Tomorrow the temps go way down and some rain forecast..so life is getting better. Hug your loved ones and rejoice in Mother Earths beauty around where you live. She is suffering the worst of all and needs your love. All the best to my IG family. Thank you.

My beloved N. California and S. Oregon is on fire. Took this today at 3:00 in the afternoon when the smoke let up a little to see the outline of the mountains. Siskiyou Mountains.

I'm sitting in my living room coughing on smoke seeping in thru the cracks with eyes burning. Never in my days on Planet Earth have I ever felt so low and worried how long it will take for some heavy rain to come and put out the thousands of fires everywhere. Mountain Lions, coyotes and deer have come down from the mountains trying to find respite as well. Last night where we keep a bunch of water buckets for the animals, I spotted a mom Mountain Lion and her baby drinking from a bucket and splashing water on her young.  I'm going to repost some beautiful rain pics to try and appease the angry fire gods. Visibility is so low no pic would be worth taking, however, we have to go to Medford Oregon today over the pass and will get some smoke fire shots if I can. Wherever you live, if you have clean air, some rain, and can see the sun, rejoice that you are one of the blessed these days.

We are desperate for rain in California, Oregon and Washington. It's like the apocolypse outside with smoke and fires everywhere. Please send a thought, a prayer, a wish, whatever works for you that moisture and heavy rains will find us soon. Luv you guys.. #onlyinnortherncalifornia

You never know what's out there until you start 👀 
We stumbled on #NewMelonesLake by chance for #LaborDay and I'm so glad we did. I feel so blessed 🙏🏻 to live in an area where I'm just a few hours from just about everything including the snow, beach, and amazing hiking spots. Know of any good spots? Share 👇🏻

Somewhere close to Etna Mountain trying to find a local fish pond in the middle of no where. Lots of luck. Didn"t find the ponds but found some awesome views.
