Reflection of Mount Lassen in the lake Today's route is called "The Three-Fingered Workout" and is found in Bodfish's book. It consists of three roads (the three fingers) that all begin in the vicinity of Chester.

Mount Lassen with old fences in the foreground In the first finger, there is an old abandoned farm with a good view of Mount Lassen.

Water flowing from a pipe In the second finger is Domingo Springs, which has potable water. We stopped to drink the fresh water and eat our sandwiches.

Cyclist riding on a narrow road in the woods In the third finger are trees, trees, and more trees. But the road is good and the traffic light.

Stream in a meadow For dinner, our cook crew made stir fry with meat from the leftover ribs, broccoli, a little asparagus, snow peas, red and green peppers, mushrooms, green onions, Rose's home-grown zucchini, garlic, and soy sauce, served over rice. Plus Caesar salad, bread, and, for dessert, hand-made ice cream with strawberries.

The same as yesterday, we had a lot of wind which made it difficult to prepare the food. We built a windbreak on the table in front of the stove out of two big plastic crates used to hold cooking utensils.
