Mt. Shasta August Days…

August has brought some smokey days, blue-bird days and FUN DAYS!

August summer day on the east side!

I’ve found myself spending a lot of time over on the east side of Mt. Shasta~

Clear Creek Route

This picture shows current conditions on the  Clear Creek route. This route is known as the least technical climbing route on the mountain.

Yep…Pine Martin

I saw this little guy and quickly put on my telephoto lens.

Mountain Heather in bloom

Mountain Heather is found on the mountain around 7,000-8,000 ft.

It is a very fragile flora and requires delicate walking when in these areas.

Lupines starting to go off!

Looking at the Hotlum/Wintun Route with the lupines and Brewer Creek in the foreground.

Ash Creek Falls

These waterfalls are a fun cross-country trek on the east side of Mt. Shasta.

and here’s what is happening on the south side…

Bunny Flat, Mt. Shasta

This is Bunny Flat Meadows with the lupines and rabbitbrush going off!

Upper Panther Meadows, Mt. Shasta

The wildflowers are just starting to awaken!

It will probably be at its peak in the next couple weeks.

The Old Ski Bowl, Mt. Shasta

There is still quite a bit of snow for late August. I walked up to the snow at 8,300ft. If your looking to play in the snow, we got it!
