No not this really, even though you don't want to see this in your mirror.
The goal was to escape before the traffic got bad. We hit a little traffic about an hour north of the city just before the interchange to I-5.
This was Mrs Twisted's first trip north of San Fransisco so it was just fun to see her face as the scenery changed.
From Farm land to olive and almond groves. We finally see Mt Shasta but we are almost a hundred miles away.
From what we could see of Shasta Lake, it was about 15 feet lower than normal. The drought is still pretty serious here.
Higher and higher into the trees and we get to see the mountain as we weave through the hills blocking the snow capped peak.
Not too bad through the windshield zoomed in a little. When it looks like we can get a good picture, I pull off into the next rest area and we stretch a bit.

Then a little zoom and the mountain feels closerand in the same place but now it fills the shot with just a little more zoom. Love the camera!
OK I know it's just a mountain but it was so much fun to share this with Mrs. Twisted as we would see it get closer and closer and then repeatedly lose sight between the mountains until we were in the valley just in front of it.
It's 37 deg F and I'm outside in the cold after filling the gas tank in plaid Dad comfy shorts. I love to drive in comfort but it was really cold here.
We arrived in Ashland just before dark and what a wonderful little town. It reminded us both of Stars Hallow.
More to come... We visited a blog friend for the first time. Did some shopping and enjoyed the little town so much!
Thank you Punkin!
