History of Mt. Shasta and Lemuria

Long, long ago, a legend of a lost continent called Lemuria was believed to have sunk beneath Mt. Shasta. That ancient continent was thought to have sunk beneath Mt. Shasta with the people called Lemurians living under the mountain. The continent is believed to have descended some 12,000 years ago. They were thought to be the Earth Keepers and protectors of Mother Earth.

The Legend of Telos tells of a crystal city within the sacred mountain inhabited by highly intelligent people, peaceful and able to be invisible to humans. The Lemurians were said to have a mastery of energy, sounds, and vibrations.

There have been numerous stories of lights, lenticular clouds, shadows, and outstanding sunsets. All of these add to the mystical aura of Mt. Shasta.

Mysteries Surround Mt. Shasta

Many mysteries surround Mt. Shasta, and one often associated with the mountain is the sightings of Bigfoot. Is it possible there is such a creature? No one can say. Is it possible that the UFO sightings are real? Perhaps the legends of the Lemuria are real.

Was there an ancient continent that could have disappeared under Mt. Shasta. Even the infamous John Muir, who visited the mountain in 1874, described it as "a religious icon." His most famous quote was "When I first caught sight of it I was weary and 50 miles away and afoot. Yet all my blood turned to wine, and I have not been wear since."

Within the Park, is one of the most beautiful waterfalls to flow through California. The falls are fed from an underground spring. The 129 foot fall so impressed President Theodore Roosevelt that he declared it the eighth Wonder of the World.

Located in the park are cabins, campsites, RV spurs along with a general store, and ample picnic areas. Information is on the National Park Service website.
