The first week of Oct, I went on a planned 1-2 night trip to Shasta for a short full moon adventure, that turned into a fun last minute road trip with a friend.
My friend who recently moved to Mt. Shasta, really wanted to see Medicine Lake, Glass Mountain, and Crater Lake. I have already been to Medicine and Crater lake, but never Glass Mountain… and since I love road trips and new places, it didn’t take much to convince me to join her on a little adventure….and of course I had to make sure we stopped at some other cool waterways on way 😊
First stop was Medicine lake, a place of special spiritual significance for local Indian tribes, that sits in the caldera of the ancient volcano, Medicine Lake Volcano. We went for a quick brisk dip in the lake before heading to the remains of the last eruption on Glass Mountain.
I couldn’t stop saying “WOW”, as we entered the shiny glass-like black Obsidian filled terrain. I have been to many volcanic areas, which all tend to give the feeling that you are on a different planet, but this one tops them all. I really wish the pictures could portray what it felt like there… unfortunately they do not. We hiked around a bit and meditated for a while. I really like it there. It is interesting how fragile the Obsidian is at certain stages of its hardening…. Some of it is just like thin, sharp glass.
We drove on to Klamath Lake where the blue-green algae is formed that I take daily as a nutritional supplement. The lake was way too thick with the alae for us to swim in.
We spent the night in Klamath Falls, and continued to Crater Lake the next morning.
As always, that lake is breathtakingly spectacular. We both swam in the pristine and very cold lake, and even though it was freezing we found it very difficult to get out.
THANK YOU all the lakes and water of our planet FOR BEING YOU!
