Lunch at Lake Shasta

On my way up to Oregon, I decided to make a stop at lake Shasta to have a late lunch. There’s nothing better than eating lunch overlooking a beautiful scene.

This blog will follow those adventures as I slowly make progress to achieving the 100 different country goal. … Continue reading
