    I spent 25 years teaching in Dunsmuir. I hated the winters, but the curvy roads, vistas, and thrills the rest of the year made up for it. Thanks for taking me back home for a short visit.

    Great pictures, you're a lucky man! I've been really trying to get down there and race the shasta dam hare scramble. It really looks like such a great place to ride. Hopefully 2017 will be the year.

    A kindred spirit, hooray!!
    LOVE your pics, there's some pure magic there.:clap
    Mt. Shasta has become an icon to me, it was also the spiritual center-of-the-universe of a departed riding buddy from Medford, OR.
    A deep thanks for posting.

    shasta650, thanks for posting all the great pictures of Mt. Shasta and the surrounding area.

    I lived in Weed many years ago. I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to some beautiful areas over the years, but Mt. Shasta is truly special. It really is a magical place.
