Standing at a commanding 14,149ft, California’s Mount Shasta towers over the surrounding towns in Siskiyou county. It’s a destination for hikers, campers, and skiers alike. However, its lenticular clouds and unusual history at the southern end of the Cascade Range make it a destination for a whole different crowd. Hippies, spiritualists, and other New-Agers flock to Mount Shasta given its weird history amongst people in those circles. This month, we’ll take a look at Shasta…some of its history, some more recent events in the area, and even some of our own experiences with the mountain.
