Mt. Shasta, California

Updated on September 11, 2013

Check out a volcano!

If you have never seen it in person, Mt. Shasta is definitely one place that you won't want to miss. To be truly appreciated, Mt. Shasta should be seen in person rather than in pictures.

Mt. Shasta is a beautiful sight. In fact, there are many amazing things to see in the area. If you have not yet gotten the chance to visit this area, which is a journey into the volcanic history of the west coast of the United States, I highly recommend traveling to this part of Northern California. If you have never seen it in person, you will be amazed at the beauty of Mt. Shasta. This area is full of breathtakingly gorgeous views you will remember for a lifetime.

Thanks for reading!

Popular Travel Destination

California has always been a pretty popular travel destination and this is true through all seasons of the year. The statewide weather is never really too cold and the summer heat is pretty tolerable (unless we're talking about Death Valley) and there are always plenty of activities throughout all seasons of the year.

Northern California is a particularly nice place, and is one of my favorite California travel destinations, especially for those who are into photography, nature and geology. Mt. Shasta is part of the Cascade Range and it is the second highest volcano in the United States rising up to over 14,000 feet in elevation.

Minerals on Ebay

There are many minerals created when a volcano erupts. One such mineral, olivine, comes from deep within the Earth. Olivine (gem form is Peridot) is known as the Hawaiian diamond and is a beautiful color of green. I chose this as the stone in my wedding ring rather than a diamond.

Have you ever seen a volcano erupt?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this lens. I hope you enjoyed it and if you haven't been there already that you may someday get the opportunity to see this breathtakingly gorgeous area.
