Originally, we planned to stop in Mt. Shasta for one night. But, who’s says you have to stick to the plan? We took an extra day to head up the mountain.
A volcano in the Cascades, Mt. Shasta is the highest peak in the Cascades and 5th highest in California. Although it’s in some dispute, it is said Mt. Shasta last erupted in 1786.
The California drought has impacted the mountain. Although there seems to be plenty of snow, the snow pack is way below normal. Regardless, it was a beautiful drive.
We went as far as Bunny Flat…
Tucker was impressed…
In the afternoon we headed over to Castle Lake; a beautiful alpine lake near Shata.
Next stop Whidbey Island and the San juans
