Weather and Events

As the weather gets wet this weekend I have noticed a tremendous amount of chatter about increasing water levels. The Shasta Shacks (shastashacks.com), a vacation rental on the Sacramento River Arm of Lake Shasta is directly affected. However, there are many other resorts and areas in the surrounding area. As I search through facebook, twitter and other social media handles I have found little information on all of the great ideas, events and places that available up there. My new task for the upcoming weeks is to collect and review new and interesting things to do in the Shasta Recreation area beyond just watersports. Follow along and reply and post your ideas as I go along this adventure!
