Great images!

I was there to shoot the mountain. I am a photographer. Going late spring, if the snow is going, requires shooting strategically from the north or east. There are plenty of places to stop. I found a radius of about 2-6 miles out was best. As usual, early or late light is best. Use a polarizer. Wait around since the mountain creates its own weather.

A great place for a spectacular sunset

We drove up the slope until we found a spot with a clear view of the whole mountain. We then pulled out our chairs and stretched out, waiting for the sun to set. It is a lifetime memory.

Wierd place. Alot of weirdos there. Shasta county calls it the 3rd Shasta, why? Definitely a wierd spot. People there boast of witch and warlock ties. Nothing very big to do at all. Seems odd.

Driving up to Mt. Shasta is a pleasure, in itself (take Everett Memorial Hwy straight up to Bunny Flat which puts you right at the base). There are several turnouts to view the surrounding area, trees and hills, in the distance. Coming to the area in autumn, the Black Oak trees, poplar and manzanita, are turning lovely shades of yellow, red & orange. It’s an easy drive, not a lot of curves, which is always a relief for those prone to carsickness. Also Bunny Flat is 6,950 ft. in elevation, so altitude sickness isn’t likely either. We did NOT hike to the top but went up a few hundred feet from the parking lot to the meadow. It’s a perfect spot to take a few pictures with spectacular Mt. Shasta in the background.

Beautiful view

The awesome view of Mount Shasta is visible from miles and miles away. If you want to hike on the mountain, many trails are available. Some trails are wooded, and some trails are more in the sun.

Wow! What a majestic mountain! The snowcaps, cloud and cloudless covers (depending on the time of year, the weather & time of day), views are all majestic! The drive from north-south has the more impressive sights from I-5...especially when you come around the curve in the road!

Incredible, beautiful, burly mountain

We enjoyed our ascent via Avalanche Gulch. I had dreamed of this ascent for years and finally made it a reality. Beautiful mountain, epic glissade on the descent!

Really an incredible mountain that juts out of a small chain. Its so much taller than anything else that you can see it 50+ miles. Not the most accessible...the views are well worth it however.

Everpresent and amazing

Wow. For some reason I thought I had been up here to see the mountain before, but I was wrong. And I'm happy I decided to take the roadtrip from my SF bay area home to visit and see the mountain in person.
Driving up the 5 I would look at the snow covered peaks in the distance and ask my co-pilot, "is that it? is that the one?"
Well, when you finally see it come into view, there's no point in asking. It's pretty obvious which mountain you're looking at.

I did not come up to ski or hike the actual mountain. Rather I was more interested in activities around the area and visiting those places too. Which was perfect.
I had originally planned on a single day but two was necessary - another day would have been nice as well.

Do some research and check out McCloud, and Weed and Lake Siskyou too!
