Wow is all you can say when you view the big bulge in the Earths crust caused by Mount Shasta. Driving from Sacramento you can see the tip from at least 150 miles away. As you get closer it grandeur doesn’t diminish. There’s some really outstanding views to behold and the trail/area that’s most impressive is Castle Lake/Heart Lake. Unbeknownst to most, if you climb the ridge to the top you get gorgeous backside views of Castle Crags. There’s so much to explore here and the views seem endless. Grabbed some really good pics too!
