Mt. Shasta Area Trip - 9/15/10 Day 6 - Girard Ridge Fire Lookout

We awoke to a beautiful view of the first sun hitting the Crags. I made Sarah tea in bed.

Life's Greatest Pleasure.......Tea in Bed

We had a slow morning and an even slower afternoon, taking a short nap. We watched Mt. Shasta erupt!!

Actually it was a jet stream lined up just right for a great image.
Soon after we were lucky enough to witness of Mt. Shasta's imfamous lenticular clouds. Some say it is where the mother ship hides!

Later we stretched our legs a bit by taking a short walk down forest road 39N13.

We enjoyed the evening while drinking beer and wine. A few clouds lingered for sunset displaying some color.

I managed to take a few night photos, however, they don’t do a great job of portraying the vibe.

The amount of stars in the night sky were magnificent. I found the following time lapse video (compliments of Henry Cline)to paint a beautiful picture of the Girard Lookout.

We were awoken in the night by a large animal rustling in the bushes outside, however, I never did identify what it was.
