Shasta Cascade

Mossbrea Waterfalls - Shasta Cascade
Cleaning up my email, I've found some old email from a group of friends regarding about the trip we took 4 years ago back in 2008. It was around this time, and we headed to Shasta Cascade region located North of California. I know there are some photos that I have marked but for some reason I haven't have a chance to take a look at them. I almost forgot about them until today. Sometimes it's good to dig through your "trash" to find treasures lying around. 
Shasta cascade is a special place in California. It boasts numerous of lakes and waterfalls. The waterfalls in this region isn't as large as Yosemite's. However, they're spectacular nonetheless. The Mossbrea falls is a small waterfall but it's a special one in California. It's not tall but it cascades more than 60 feet long running through moss-covered wall. In wet year, the fall is most amazing in early spring after a wet winter. Late in summer, it becomes just a few trickles.
McArthur Burney Falls State Park
The most famous waterfall in this region is McAruthr Burney waterfalls. It's about 130 feet tall. It's not the largest or the tallest one in California but it is the most beautiful. Most people take photo to show the grand-beauty of the whole waterfall. I want to try something different by zooming closer. Still one can see the magnificent of this natural treasure.
