Wildflowers and Shasta

Wildflowers and Mt. Shasta

So Mt. Shasta… it’s known for being a spiritual energetic vortex, like Sedona and several other places in the world. In the back of my mind, I was wondering whether or not this was just new age nonsense, but as soon as I got into the area, there was such an unbelievable energetic sensation that flooded my whole body. Being in the presence of this mountain felt so good, brought tears to my eyes, and inexplicably I found myself instantly falling in love with the place… πŸ™‚

Mt. Shasta is quite visible from the surrounding areas. Like many other mountains I would find in this corner of the country like Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Olympus, etc… this mountain stands out on its own as a big peak, not so much part of a collection of densely-packed peaks.

There’s a town based around this mountain, conveniently enough named Shasta as well. It was a wonderful place to spend the night, sleeping with Shasta. πŸ™‚

The next day I drove on over to the mountain to go take a closer look.

At the trailhead where I snapped these pics, there was some wonderful foreground play areas to complement the striking mountain.

Actually, Mt. Shasta looks beautiful no matter what it lies behind… even power lines! (Which in the photography world is often a no-no!) πŸ˜‰

I didn’t stay in this area too long, although it felt so wonderful, because I’m really eager to get some miles behind me and start working my way up to Alaska. Nevertheless, seeing the mountain in my rear-view mirror as I drove away made me stop and pull over off the highway and onto a gravel turnout for another shot. You can see this mountain from waysssss away, and she looks beautiful from every angle. πŸ™‚
