No matter what angle you have on it, Mt Shasta is an impressive sight. Not only does it tower over 14,000 feet high, but it stands virtually alone. No other mountains obstruct the view of this giant. And it can be visible, on a good clear day, for many miles.
Fondest memory: I loved seeing the mountain from so many different places.
