Mt. Shasta Area

Photos Page | Home Page

This is Mount Shasta, as seen from Modoc County in the northeast. This is a beautiful, wide open region of the state.

A train travels through Butte Valley, northeast of Shasta peak, the base of which you can just see in this photo. The lights of the train were so bright that I saw a second, reflect image through the viewfinder. Thankfully, this was not a problem with the lens, but some kind of harmless reflection inside of the camera.

This is not in California; it's in Oregon. Oregon and Washington are the states where you can hardly get out of view of a volcano...at least along the spine of the Cascade Mountains. Many roads aim themselves picturesquely towards distant peaks.
