Lassen Peak & Diller Canyon, Mt. Shasta Conditions

This past weekend has been fun with new exploration on the lower slopes of Mt. Shasta~Diller Canyon.

Early Morning~Heading up Diller Canyon.

Sunday morning my friend Steve Lewis and myself headed up Diller Canyon located on the west side of Shastina. This area is a rarely visited gem on the lower slopes of Mt. Shasta.  Besides the very challenging drive in, it makes for a great spring ski and during the summer months one can find small waterfalls and wildflowers galore.
