I’ll give shout-outs to Laura, Jeremy and Charlotte for guessing correctly too. Good job guys!
Here was last week’s photo, correctly identified as Lake Shasta by Amanda Miller of the Amanda Miller Design Company. Lake Shasta is located in Northern California, not too far south of the Oregon border. Lake Shasta (also known as Shasta Lake) is a man-made reservoir, created by the construction of Shasta Dam across the Sacramento River. It is hugely popular for house boating. In fact, that’s just what I was doing with seven of my friends a few years ago. In the background is Mount Shasta, a dormant volcano located at the southern edge of the Cascade mountain range. The last time it erupted was in 1786. It’s the second highest peak in the Cascades and the fifth highest in California.
