But Burney Falls was not unremarkable. It was gorgeous and the highlight of the day, far and away. I took the Falls Trail to circle the falls and was graced with some gorgeous views. As I walked closer to the falls I could feel the mist cooling my face and exposed legs (did I mention I got new absurdly short shorts?). There were only a few others around and everything was perfect for a moment.
The rest of the day wasn’t nearly as cool, bit I did get to see Mt. Shasta in the distance. It’s quite striking due to its surroundings.
