The weather is starting to cool down at night and hopefully the fires will start burning out too. We still are okay here in Mt. Shasta. Smokey on and off depending on the wind direction.
Tourist are here and enjoying all the unlimited recreation offered! Book a tour or buy my book, "Mount Shasta Guide to Fun" for all the fun you need!
On a tour with a wonderful family at Middle McCloud Falls!
We did get a few small fires out of this storm. The fire crews were right on it and got them contained.
Thank you to all the firefighters and personnel fighting all the fires!
The Sundew is rare to find. It is a insectivorous plant that traps insects with sweet drops of liquid excreted from the red hairy glands covering the leaf. it was recorded on Mt. Shasta in 1941.
BEAR UPDATE: Fowler’s Campground, on the Shasta McCloud Management Unit on the U.S. Forest Service - Shasta-Trinity National Forest, is closed until further notice due to an assertive black bear that continues to roam the campground. Forest Service employees plan to “deep clean” the campground in hopes of removing remnants of food smells, all trash, etc. to eradicate the temptations that kept the bear coming around.
Forest visitors please be BEAR AWARE! Help take proper steps to minimize bear encounters by doing the following:
Keep a clean campsite by properly disposing of food scraps and garbage at ALL times.
Never leave food or coolers unattended OR out in the open (i.e. on picnic tables).
Do not leave dog food out ever.
Store food and garbage inside a vehicle or camper trailer at all times.
Never store food or any smelly products inside your tent.
