Glenn rode in the Mount Shasta Summit Century on Sunday. He did the metric century, 58 miles. He's taking his vacation this year in small parts so he had off Thursday - Sunday. We left Friday after I got off work and made it to Ukiah. We took the long way -- Highway 101. Saturday we had time to look around as we made our way north. Glenn & Lauren drove through this tree on their trip a few years ago so we went looking for it again. Roxanne since told me that there are at least 2 other trees in CA that you can drive through. Are there more? Can you see Glenn in the photo below?
This was on the Avenue of the Giants. HUGE trees! I'll have a story to tell later about our hotel situation, but today is only the good stuff. :-) While Glenn was riding Sunday morning I drove out to the Mt. Shasta Lavender Farm. Made it just in time. August 1 was the last day of the season! Wow, this place was great!
An online friend, Deborah, told me about this place. What's funny is that she & her family were there on Saturday. We probably passed each other on the freeway! I didn't see photos on her blog yet, but she did feature some of my tags on a recent post. Thanks, Deborah!!! Here's some of the lavender I picked. It's upstairs drying right now. Think I'll make some sachets soon.
