Mount Shasta northern California

21 Sep 2011

The journey from Sebastapol was beautiful – coming through mountain ranges lakes, to view Mount Shasta from a distance nearly 200 kms away. We stayed with our ‘couchsurfing’ friend, Stacey in her beautiful cottage nestled between the Sacramento River and the rail road tracks, Mt Shasta visible from the front of the property. Stacey, her partner, Jeremy, the 2 dogs & cats – were wonderful hosts. We felt welcome and spoiled during our stay. Temperatures during the day were hot (even though there was snow on the mountain) with fresh clear air and the inspiration from the magnificent Mt Shasta – a real ‘wow’ factor. We explored an area up the mountain called Panther Meadow – a pristine wonderland of wild flowers, crystal clear bubbling streams from deep mountain springs and old-growth trees. Tiny squirrels scurried in and out rocks. We visited the local trout farm, recently covered with high-wires due to osprey swooping to catch easy prey. The area has black bears & deer as well as excellent wild fisheries (salmon & trout). We swam in the local swimming hole where a trout ladder has been constructed to aid spawning. This area is a ‘must-see’ experience for any adventurer. Tomorrow we’re off to Salt Lake City – a long ‘hike’ of 1,000 kms.
