Sacramento

We are just about to leave Sacramento heading further south to Visalia.

Two days of travel and sightseeing included Crater Lake in Oregon. Absolutely spectacular lake formed by a volcanic eruption thought to have taken place about 70,000 years ago. If you ever visit Crater Lake enter the park from the south. We entered from the north and it was quite frightening driving narrow roads with the cliffs falling away on the right and no guard rails.

Yesterday we drove south from Klamath Falls and had spectacular views of Mount Shashta. We drove into a couple of lake resorts on Lake Shashta. It would be a great place for an outdoors holiday. We also visited Shashta Dam...very impressive! Facts and figures may follow.

This morning we wandered around Old Sacramento which is an historic district and very touristy. It was even getting crowded at 9.30am and nothing really opened until 10.
