Walking down the short trail to Hedge Creek Falls.
Right off of I-5 as you come to Dunsmuir's first exit.
We've been here 6 years and finally saw them!

Even though they look small,
they are quite noisy.

If you look carefully you can spot
Russell walking past the waterfall.
You can walk behind the falls without
really getting wet!
Have a great day where ever you are!

Customer Service at Couch Critics Movies and Games
Mt Shasta, California
 
Crash will help you find just the right movie for
your evening's entertainment!
James Cannon now refers to the Mount Shasta movie
store he started in 2005 as “the last unicorn in the forest.”
The movie business has changed drastically over the years with the rise of Netflix and other streaming services and the closing of businesses such as Blockbuster, but Couch Critics Movies and Games remains one of the last independent movie stores in California.

We are so lucky and blessed to live
where we live side by side
with all sorts of wild creatures.
We move quietly and they have learned
that they can trust us.
Amazing!
Have a lovely day!

It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home.
He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.
I think it’s a good thing to do each week.
Focus on the positive things in our lives.

I found this little card in a book
that a friend loaned to me.
It was as if my mother had stuck it in there
as she used to sing this little poem
to me when I was in bed going to sleep.

While having a lovely lunch in Dunsmuir
I spotted a peach tree beginning to
bud out with little leaves and pink blossoms.
 Because Dunsmuir is 1000' lower in altitude than
 where we live spring comes about a month earlier.  
Have a wonderful day!
And here's my Sparks for this week...
thanks to the internet!
 
 
 
My father read all the Pooh books to me and
as a mother I read all the Pooh books to my children.
 So many good thoughts and laughter in those books.
