Shasta Caverns

 When you are in 6th grade in Shasta County, you get to go on a field trip to Shasta Caverns.  It is an amazing field trip right after you finish the study of rocks.  Seeing what you have learned about in real life really helps to understand it all.
 We are so fortunate to live so close to so many historical places.  Shasta Caverns is just a boat ride across Shasta Lake!
 Kristina, Hannah, Anna and Lauren
 We have had SO much rain this year, the lake is VERY full!  I can't wait for warm weather so we can go out on the patio boat!
 I am so thankful that Scott likes all these "hiking required" field trips!  He was a good boy and took lots of pictures too!!
 The cavern was discovered by an indian who was chasing a bobcat!  Look how small the opening is!  Scott could not believe the rough terrain all around the cavern.  After the boat ride, you take a bus up a wind-y {scary} little road.  He couldn't imagine those people wandering all around that area way back then!
 Everyone wore headlamps to navigate through the cool, dark caverns.
 I wouldn't mind having one of those things to wear at night when I am reading!
 Anna had a great time,
 especially since she had her Dad there to experience it all with!
Shasta Caverns is just another wonderful example of God's handiwork!

"Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord, 
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable."
Isaiah 40:28

Had to laugh about you needing one of those hats to read by at night......that's an awesome idea. I need one of those too!
