Our World: Mt. Shasta

Mt.Shasta, California

Mt. Shasta is one of the taller volcanoes of the Cascade Range. This active volcano lies in Siskiyou County in Northern California is visible from Interstate 5 if you are on the way to Oregon (or if you are driving down from there).

If you are on your way South, there is a viewpoint just off I-5 that gives you a great view of this Stratovolcano. These pictures of Mt. Shasta are from one of my stops there.
