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!

Wanna go on a tour, call, text or email me at 530-926-3250 or robin@mountshastaguide.com

July has been sizzling and fun so far!

The weather has been great with nice warm temperatures and clear blue skies!

Sand Flat, Mt. Shasta

Most of the snow has melted on the lower slopes of Mt. Shasta. The Sand Flat loop isn’t passable yet but can drive in through Lower Sand Flat. The county says the gate at Bunny Flat will be open on July 21st to the end of the road~The Old Ski Bowl. Will keep you posted.

Middle McCloud Falls, McCloud

I was giving a tour this day and the light was shining through!

Many people come up to Mt. Shasta to see and feel the beauty, sacredness and silence that can be experienced.

Mt. Shasta sacred site

This unique rock outcropping is located on the lower slopes of Mt. Shasta.

Many come to mediate and pray here amongst the beautiful Shasta Red Firs.

Touring with the Velasco Family.

I had a great time showing the Velasco Family around the beautiful Mt. Shasta area!

Wildflower Galore!

Meadows full of wildflowers are spectacular right now.

I did a hiking tour with two lovely women mother and daughter from Japan.

We hiked to Lower, Middle and Upper Deadfall Lakes.

Naomi enjoying taking pictures.
