On to Yamsi and Beyond
Left Redding before 9am under partly cloudy skies. North on I5, this part of which is much nicer than everything south of Redding. We stopped in Mount Shasta City to (re)visit the headwaters of the Sacramento River. This large river starts as a spring in the side of a mountain in a very nice city park.

Start of the mighty Sacramento River.
Headwaters of the Williamson River
This is just one of the views that people at Yamsi Ranch have to look at every day.
This morning, June 13th, after a hearty ranch breakfast, north again on US97. Quick stop at Collier State Park to dump the tanks and then on through occasional rain showers (forgot to mention that the temperature at sunrise was 28 degrees) to Bend. First purchase of the trip - a new mattress. The old one was foam and rather quickly developed the dish syndrome after we bought it. Looking forward to a good sleep tonight.
