Mountains and Trains

Heading south on I-5 yesterday toward Yreka, I was sufficiently taken by the view of Mount Shasta to stop for a few minutes at the vista point and take a few photos.

A haze obscured the view of the mountain.

I think the view was more impressive than these photos show.

Stretching south from the vista point is the Shasta Valley and the city of Yreka.

I then continued the few miles south to Yreka and looked in on the Yreka Western Railroad. Alas, the YWRR has been obliged to cancel its 2009 tourist railroad season.

More photos on Flickr.

It seems like I've never had the time to stop and ride this line when passing through on my way to/from Oregon. Now, unless things improve considerably, I may never get to do so.
