On Friday night we all got together for meet and greet but before we started we did some other meet and greet with the local population. Roxanne was able to pet the deer as if it was just another one of the dogs.
Dave decided that they needed some more food so he was able to hand feed one of them. This is only one of about 12 that wandered around the camp.
We had a one-day fishing derby and here is Ray and Bill with a good string of fish (in Ray's fold-a-boat). Not sure how many folks finally got out on the water, but they had lots of luck with bringing in quite a few fish. All the fish were prepared and we had a great fish fry that night (actually they were barbequed and were very tasty).
Another night we shared a great meal that was catered and shared with all. Here is the caterer barbequeing the chicken and beef. Delicious! One thing about the MOC rallys, no one is going to starve!
Robbie, Alice and the two of us drove up to Castle lake. The truck is parked at the far end of the lake, and we headed out on the trail trying to get around the lake. When we got into the snow we lost the trail and went just about as far as we could, then turned back. What a beautiful view from close to the top of the mountain.
On this old back road we also found the remains of a resort that was build about 1889 near the location of a hot springs. I should say all we found was the remains of the retaining walls and the water system for the hot springs. Dry now with nothing but the smell of sulphur and cold water.
The last evening Dick went for a short hike and was able to get some pictures of the setting sun on the side of Mount Shasta. We will leave you with this picture and post more after the next stop on our rally trip.
