Lower Falls, McCloud River

Mount Shasta is sheathed in white.  Its lower slopes, however, are experiencing the spring snowmelt.  A slight detour on my way north took me to a little, but very pretty waterfall called the Lower Falls on the McCloud River, on the southern flank of Shasta.

The water is unbelievably clear.

According to an information board, the Indians who lived in this area called this falls "Where-The-Salmon-Turn-Back".

As usual, great photos. I am trying but I find it hard to do the 3D if that's my worst problem...
