At over 14,000 feet, snow-capped Mt. Shasta (second highest of the Cascade Mountains after Mt. Rainier) dominates the landscape for miles around. Slumbering for the last 200 years, this volcano has exercised a singular power over the human imagination for generations. The current generation is no exception. Mt. Shasta attracts New Age thinkers who believe that it's the focus of energy channel convergence. The mountain, surrounding lakes, and state parks beckon outdoor adventurers with all the ingredients for an unforgettable day of climbing, hiking, fishing, golf, boating, mountain biking, skiing, or just exploring in this rugged region. Craggy peaks, pristine waters, and abundant wildlife offer you an experience of majestic beauty whether or not your physique is up to the challenges of active pursuits. The entire area is one long scenic drive. But do your best to get out of the car and be part of the great outdoors. Perhaps at Mt. Shasta you'll find that harmonic convergence your spirit seeks!
