Yreka Sunrise Scenes  2011

I departed Canyonville Oregon at about 4:00 AM and drove south along I-5, on my way back to the San Francisco Bay area.  That put me in the N. California town of Yreka just as the sun was coming up.  Great time to stop, have a cup of coffee at the small service station in the foreground of the first photo, and take a couple of photos of the beautiful sunrise.


Looking to the east from Yreka, the sun is rising



Descending from the north into the Yreka valley, Mt. Shasta looms large in the south



There are a lot of ranches around Yreka.  This equipment appears to have been abandoned
