Wordless Wednesday and Happy Fourth of July!!! July 4 and 5, 2017

Photo taken by one of my photography students.
This is the second year Weed Library has 
offered free photography classes for 6-16 year olds.
Thanks to a Union Pacific grant!!
Happy 4th of July!
One of a Pacific Crest Trail hikers
who stayed with us this past weekend-
she needed a few days to recover from heat stroke.
A very nice young woman from Munich, Germany.
We have a great time hosting hikers. Sometimes we
spot them in downtown Mt Shasta and ask them
if they would like to come home with us for
the night, do their laundry, have dinner and
get a ride back to the trailhead the next morning.  
We have met the nicest people - so fun!
Always a positive experience. 
More info here on the PCT  .

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
