A Welcoming June in Mt. Shasta!

Summer is very near with sunny and warm temperatures so far!

The month of May had some nice offerings too~

Early Morning~The beginning of May.

This season we are above the normal snow average. It’s been a great season and continues. There is still 5-10 feet of snow at and above 8,000 ft.

Great climbing and skiing 9,000 ft. and above!

Burstarse Falls~Castle Crags Wilderness

This beautiful waterfall is a nice hike along the Pacific Crest Trail. The last section down to the falls is a bit challenging but worth it!

For directions and more information, check out my book, “Mount Shasta Guide to Fun”.

Castle Lake

Now Castle Lake is completely melted out. There is still snow up higher but not for long!
