Road Trippin: Lake Shasta

Loves Food, Loves to Eat: Lake Shasta
Weekend before last, Amanda, Evan, and I road-tripped from Seattle to Lake Shasta, in northern California. We drove through Oregon's Willamette Valley wine country, and stopped at Ankeny winery… home to a super old cemetary and crazy red-eyed emu. We met up in Cali with Mel's side of the fam, for a little houseboat reunion.

Lake Shasta (or Shasta Lake, both work), is one of the most beautiful places ever. We had unbelievable sunsets each night, and the light is constantly changing, making the water glisten and sparkle at certain times, and turn a deep, dark greenish blue at others. And the red-orange shorelines contrast with the water, mountains, and trees beyond like you wouldn't believe. It's really a photographer's playground out there.  Not to mention we made a few friends, including a giant bald eagle that swooped down right next to us (and almost hauled off my little cousin!). We did a ton swimming and floating, ate and drank, and played a whole lot of Barbies (again, little cousin). Here are a few of my favorite shots from the winery and the lake.
