|View of Shasta on the way to Castle Crags|
Thursday, February 19, 2015
On a clear day . . .
We joined our hiking group on a trip to N. CA's Castle Crags, just south of Mt. Shasta City. Even though it is mid February, it might as well have been June. We shed our light jackets early and enjoyed the sun and clear blue skies. The hike took us over at least 5 running streams and up 2400 feet. We have been awe struck by the views of Castle Crags on our many trips back from S. CA along I-5 and wanted to hike in the area. This was our chance and it couldn't have been a nicer day.
