but thought it might be of interest to some. My wife and I went for a hike on Mt. Shasta yesterday. The photo was taken at about 8,000 feet elevation. The summit, which is not visible in this view, is 14,180 feet. For those of you unfamiliar with Mt. Shasta it is a volcanic mountain in the Cascade Mountains in northern California and is about a 70 mile drive north of Redding.
