As we are moving on to “Something happened in Mount Shasta”, I couldn’t pass up sharing this beautiful shot with you. We stayed at Burney Falls for a few hours, admiring the Falls, hiking a leisurely footpath that was leading downstream and which later crossed to the other side with a beautiful arched wooden bridge. The rocks on the side of the trail were a luscious shade of green from the covered moss that was thriving in the damp conditions near the Falls. I’m sure the wind would carry plenty of overspray to create ideal conditions for growth.
We hiked the other side of the stream that was gently climbing to the top of the Falls. Another bridge, simple and not as ornate crossed over the rushing waters once more and eventually brought us back to where we had started our loop. We took a few more picture and exclaimed that it was well worth the time to stop and explore this place once more.
