McCloud River, California - Lower, Middle, and Upper Falls

After leaving Burney Falls State Park, we continued on exploring the area.  Going north on the "American Highway" (hwy 89), there was a perfect photo op for Mount Shasta.
Once arriving at the national forest, we started our hike on what is known as the lower falls area.  You can, if you enlarge, see this has to be a perfect swimming hole on a hot summer day!  People were fishing from the diving ledge (on the left hand side of pic)

This is what is called the middle falls...

The middle falls were quite impressive!
Burney falls had a lot of cool cabins for rent
At the upper falls. all the water was channeled through a chute.



McCloud bed and breakfast
All the housed in McCloud had steep pitches roofs. A lot of snow?
