This area east of Mt. Shasta is one of the most diverse and least visited volcanoes in California. It is actually the largest volcano (in total area) within California known as a Hawaiian Type Shield Volcano.
This cinder cone is composed of pumice and red and black cinders. These type of cones were formed by gaseous, explosive eruptions in chich cinders piled up around the opening.
Nice views of Pumice Stone Mountain, a cinder cone with a deep layer of pumice. This seasonal pond is often a favorite hangout for wildlife.
This cinder cone volcano offers incredible views of the entire Medicine Lake Highlands area. Interested in renting this for the night~http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fsm9_008296.pdf
A Medicine Circle on Little Mt. Hoffman.
This is lovely little lake is adjacent to Medicine Lake. The lake partially fills the caldera which was formed when the Medicine Lake Volcano Collapsed. There’s a nice picnic area, boat launch and campgrounds. Check out my book, “Mount Shasta Guide to Fun” for more…
Just like a painting.
This is the youngest volcanic flow in the area. It is known to many Native American tribes for its obsidian, a volcanic black glass which was used for spear and arrow points.
I love this area. It’s so mystical! Wanna go on a tour~give me a call!
Have a great week!
