The waterfall routeOctober 5, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C
The weather was beautiful again today, so we had an early start after some waffles, yogurt, blackberries and a cappuccino for breakfast. After about 30km, we took a side road to the Highway 89 (which we are going to follow for the next few days) and visited McCloud Falls: Lower, Middle and Upper Falls which are actually quite nice but mostly ignored by tourists as there's the more famous McArthur Burney Falls in the area.
Back on the highway, we had to climb on a rolling road (meaning up and down all the time) until we got to Dead Horse Summit, the highest point of today's ride. But after a climb comes a downhill - again on a rolling road and with a view of Mt Lassen, our next destination - to McArthur Burney State Park to see the waterfalls. We also decided to stay for the night and pitched our tent on the hike&bike campsite. Before going to bed, we were able to go for a swim in nearby Britton Lake, so could wash the sweat off 😉Read more
