Summit Cows and Summit Ducks

Completing last night's photo essay, here's Shasta by daylight.

The Siskiyous are almost always beautiful to drive through, but it's a different trip every time. You just have to have your camera ready and take whatever they throw at you. The light and weather are constantly shifting. Today fog was spilling over the pass at the highest point on Interstate 5, about 5 miles north of the Oregon border.

A few minutes after the last picture, the road looked like this.

Then, coming into Ashland, the farmland appeared again.

The Siskiyou summit is not particularly high by mountain standards: It's about 4,000 feet. But the weather along that stretch can be capricious anyhow.
