    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.

    This is a rather quaint, out-of-the-way local history museum staffed by volunteers. They possess a wealth of knowledge about this area. The more you learn about this town, the more interesting it becomes. The building was originally the town jail, and the cells are still here. It's open 10:00-5:00 daily, from late May to the end of September.

    The Serenity of Castle Lake

    Castle Lake view

    Way up high in some mountains a ways from Lake Siskiyou. The local indigenous people (the Shasta & Wintu) referred to Castle Lake as the castle of the devil. For them, the waters were said to be possessed of an evil spirit most often heard in the winter months.

    In truth, Castle Lake is a place of special beauty. An extra plus is we were its only tourists when we were there. We, romantically had it all to ourselves.

    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.

    Shasta Lake

    Shasta Lake is located halfway between Mount Shasta City and Redding. It is a large lake with lots of recreation. The Shasta Lakes Caverns are also located here

    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.

    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.

    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.
