Mt. Shasta is one of the largest volcanoes in the lower 48. Although Shasta is in Northern California, its presence can be felt well into Southern Oregon. Climbers and skiers flock to this 14,162-foot behemoth every year during the season to attempt the rather treacherous summit. Shasta Lake flanks the southern foothills of the peak and provides most of the water for Northern California and the Sacramento Valley along with the perfect spot for spring-breaking on a houseboat. The mountain is also shrouded in mystery and paranormal pseudoscience, with some claiming Sasquatch lives inside the vast lava tube network along with other lost civilizations. Lenticular clouds usually hang over the peak, much like Mt. Rainier, and some see this as the mountain projecting its mysterious energy. Whatever you believe, Shasta is the peak to visit in Northern California and a dream for climbers looking to gain some elevation on the West Coast.
