After this post, thanks to new readers submitting photos, I have four more entries, but those will be exhausted quickly. Get your pfiz before thousands of people by sending me photos (maximum two) and a brief tale behind the photos, preferably (but not necessarily) detailing your activities during lockdown). Thanks!
Today’s reader is Dieter Letsch, and here’s his story:
This photo was taken in April when my wife Dianne and I were staying at my mother-in-law’s cabin near Weed, CA. In the background is Mount Shasta, which is a large stratovolcano in Northern California. It is near the southern end of the West coast’s Cascade Range. It stands out impressively above the surrounding forested countryside and can be seen from many miles away. It is 14,180 feet (4322 m) tall, and has erupted about every 250 years over the past 1000 years or so. The only historically reported eruption was on September 7, 1786 as supposedly observed by the French explorer Lapérouse from his ship, but that account has been discredited.
The second shot is of the mountain at sunset.
