I can't tell you how much happier I feel after a few days away from everything! I'm already daydreaming about our trip to Donner Lake at the end of the month :)
I definitely want to go back to the Mt. Shasta area when I can take more time off, there are so many different lakes and trails that we wanted to explore, but for being there for two and a half days we explored quite a bit. Hooray for it being summer somewhere!
