    Mount Shasta City

    Mount Shasta City

    This town is large enough to provide the basic necessities--hotels, grocery stores, restaurants, and a visitor's center. Food and lodging tend to be relatively cheap. Mt Shasta is a perfect base for exploring the entire region.

    While there, be sure to taste the water. That's right--just plain tap water. It trickles down from the mountain, filtered by ancient volcanic rock. It really is a special treat.

    Shasta is one of a series of majestic volcanic peaks that dot the Pacific coast. Like its more northerly cousins, Mt. Baker and Hood, Shasta stands head and shoulders above its surroundings, and is always covered with at least a skullcap of white stuff. It's known for skiing, mountaineering, and beautiful views from the highway.

    Siskiyou Lake Campground View

    Siskiyou Lake Campground offers one of the best views of Mount Shasta. Here you can get a picture of Mount Shasta with a lake in the foreground. If you get there at the right time, you may get a reflection. The campground allows people that are not camping into the facility for a $1.00 per person fee.

    Another part of the McCloud Falls to see. Go while the weather is good as it's obviously better then.
    By the time we started getting here the weather was starting to turn on us.

    A short hike from the parking lot brings you to McCloud River lower falls.

    Going here in May of 2007 there weren't many other visitors and deer were abundant in the area.

    Going up to Bunny Flats by car, there are plenty of beautiful places to take in the view. Bunny Flats is about 6800 ft. above see level and takes about 45 minutes to get there from Shasta city.

    Th bus trip was well worth the trip to see these amazing formations. Some of the cave was low and dark and wet. Don't remember if we saw bats...I'm sure they were watching us.
