Stranded in Weed Ca. Sunsets in Quartzite

Thought i would follow our leaders post with a collage. And Dot I am not bored with sky watch Friday

This is what it looked like at Shasta Lake Yesterday before we got here to Weed Ca. We really expected a lot more.

Roads were good so we decided to stay the night here at the Motel/ Rv park as it was already 4:30 pm knowing we couldn't make it to anyplace before dark. Well not sure that was the right decision as this is what we had this morning. Along with very high winds about 3 am when we had to put the slides in.Princess having a good time in the snow, but she did look at me with a look of "are you kidding me? " You want me to do what out here?

Unwanted visitor the Coyote

A visitor this morning in our campground, These pesty things have been howling at night ever since we got here but i have never been able to see one till this morning, i guess there getting pretty brave to show up in the daylight. Warnings have been not to leave any pets on leashes outside unattended, i guess there getting pretty hungry and easy prey for unfortunate small animals around here.
Click on the photo to see better. There were two of them but i couldn't get them together.



We are leaving in the morning to head back home, does not sound very good from the weather report, snow and more snow, we heard that the Grapevine was closed due to bad weather. Not going to be going that way but from the looks of things I-5 doesn't look good so will have to keep checking with the weather reports as we head on home. Son called this morning and said that there was already 4 inhes of new snow from 9 am to 11 am and more snow coming all week long. Might take us longer to get home then 3 days.
Weather here this morning is rainy and wet with many puddles.

We are off


Hello everyone,
Well it is late and tonight we decided that we had better hit the road in the morning for the start of our month long vacation to Quartzite Arizona.
The weather report says that storms are coming in Thursday and Friday. We want to get over the passes before the storms hit. So have been frantically working this evening to get everything ready to go. Hopefully we will hit the road no later than 10 am .

I hope to be able to connect to Wi-Fi somewhere on our journey so will try to check in with you all, and hopefully have some great new photos to share.
