Leaving any place after a vacation is always a little bit sad. I had to struggle with those feelings yesterday when we headed off down Interstate 5 and left Mt. Shasta behind. We discovered we couldn't quite leave the area without making at least one more stop.
Initially, we had hoped to delay our departure a little and obtain a late checkout at Mt. Shasta Resort, but the front desk couldn't give it to us. No authority, I guess. Instead, she switched our call to the housekeeping police, which my husband said barked at him. No, no extension. Not even an hour. Get out. Go.
This was not the niceness we had otherwise encountered in Mt. Shasta. Well, there was the freaked out police officer who almost drew his gun on my husband as he approached with hands in pocket to ask how far he could park the car from the curb. We looked so dangerous. Just like Bonnie and Clyde, us old farts, me in my Chanel sandals and designer bag, and my husband in his REI pants and receding hairline.
You can read about the end of our trip in my personal blog today about A Short Visit to Dunsmuir, California.
