Kim and I are in northern California east of Red Bluff and Redding. We (I really) wanted to do some exploring so we turned off the main road and found Forest Service #22 road. It looked good on the map. The first 2-3 miles were through a beautiful meadow.
Then the road turned into a dirt road. No problem. We have a SuperDuty Ford F250. I looked a bit ahead and noticed a steep road on the side of the hill we were going to go over. "That can't be our road, can it"? Next thing I know, we're on the edge of the 'mountain' on a one-lane messy dirt road going up at a very steep angle. Kim is holding her breath while holding on for dear life. I'm thinking to myself, "what have I gotten us into"? No turning back so we just plowed ahead for about a quarter mile until the road veered away from the cliff. Pheeeewwwww.
Once we got up to the top (about 4 miles later) we came across this view.
More to come later when we sort through all the photos. Burney Falls, Lassen snow and forests, scenic views, and more !
