Swell day. No hitches. Fab weather at the top, not windy. Lots of blue sky and white Mt Shasta. The lookout itself is maintained with new coat of paint and shingles, but closed up. The various microwave towers looking cool against the weather beaten rocky crag that is the actual summit, covered with lichens, moss, blooming sedum and other ground hugging plants, manzanita, pine here and there picturesquely contorted. Mt Shasta looked like miracle whip, just iridescent and yummy.
NEW RELEASE FROM SHALI: ESCAPE FROM HERE
“I love the characters and placing them into situations which bring out their personality quirks and discoveries. I love putting words into their mouths and saying things I couldn’t say in real life. I love juxtaposing the American culture of aggressiveness and compassion with the Chinese culture of change and tradition in modern times. I love creating characters with deep, three-dimensional facets and painting scenery with intense detail.” Sha Li
