Mossbrae Falls, Shasta Country

On the last night of our roadtrip, Katie and I spent the night at Castle Crags State Park, a sweet little park just off I-5 near Castella, California. In addition to being a pleasant place to stay, it was also very conveniently located just a few miles south of Dunsmuir, California, home of the beautiful Mossbrae Falls.

We woke (relatively) early, packed, and left Castle Crags and after a pit stop at an adorable bakery/cafe in Dunsmuir for coffee and a pastry, we were on our way to the falls.

After a 20 minute walk in the shadow of Mt. Shasta, we arrived at Mossbrae. It is a stunning spot, and happily, we had it all to ourselves on a glorious morning.

Next time, I'm bringing a picnic :)

Oh man, this is another lovely picture Della. Beautiful, peaceful, and serene. Love it! You are really making me want to get out more with my own camera. I wish I could do images such justice too. Oh well, like playing an instrument, practice, practice, practice.

Della, I was listening to this magnificent Liszt composition Jeux d'eau a Villa d'Este and remembered this lovely waterfall capture of yours. What an amazing combo your photo and this music make!!!

Liszt, wrote this as an evocation of the fountains, and the noise of waters in the magnificent garden of Villa d'Este, situated at Tivoli near Rome.
