Snowshoeing on Mt. Ashland

Mount Shasta from snowy Mount Ashland

Thinks are heating up around Ashland so I’m sharing a blast from the coldness of this past winter today.

(Actually, I have no idea if things are heating up in Ashland, but they should be this time of year. I created this post weeks ago, and am now in Japan so I don’t know what the weather is like in Ashland. This post has been preset to post on June 22. Hopefully it does, and hopefully I’m having a blast on my way to Korea.)

I posted a photo of this tree before. Today’s version features a different angle and some fresh snow.

Photomerge from Mt. Ashland

Today’s pic is from this past weekend when I did some snowshoeing on Mt. Ashland. I took 7 vertical photos and put them together to come up with this one horizontal one. Doing such makes Mt. Shasta (to the left of center between the trees) and the rocks on my right look much smaller than they actually looked at the time. I’ll post individual photos of what Shasta and the rocks really looked like in a later entry.

I believe the smaller mountain between the two is Goosenest.

Descending from Castle Peak

heart lake castle crags hiking

During our only full day at Lake Siskiyou we drove about 8 miles to Castle Lake (elevation 5436 feet). From there we went on a 5-mile (or so) hike to Heart Lake (elevation 6035 feet) and then above it to Castle Peak (elevation 6617 feet). The views are best from Heart Lake and above Heart Lake on Castle Peak where you can see the lakes, Mt. Shasta, Castle Crags and a lovely 360 degrees of wilderness. Today’s photo isn’t from the top though. The lakes are obscured by trees, but you can see Black Butte and Mt. Shasta, as well as some of my hiking party.

We just returned from a few days in California. We camped near Lake Siskiyou which is near Mt. Shasta in Northern California, only a little over an hour south of Ashland. The lake was chaos on hot days in the afternoon on a weekend in August, but I took today’s photo in the morning with few people around.

The California/Oregon border is a lovely place at 7 in the morning in October.

Mt. Shasta in January?

Mt. Shasta

This is what Mt. Shasta should look like from Mt. Ashland in early November. In early December of 2010 Mt. Shasta looked like this. However, I took today’s photo less than a week ago. There is very little snow on Mt. Shasta (or Mt. Ashland), and there hasn’t been any new snow since either.
