Mt. Shasta California We are all about adventure here, most of or posts center around the theory that adventure is an amazing way to learn. We stopped by the Shasta Trinity National Forest offices for our Christmas tree permits. For $10 this allowed us to cut our tree up at Mt. Shasta. The benefits of doing so are huge! Outdoor education day for M&H (in the snow!) + a trip with the Grandparents + a snowy hike along our favorite fire road + time for snowmen, snow angels, snowball fights and the most beautiful tree in the forest. Dad is standing next to ours, right before the cut down.
