Castle Lake and Mt. Shasta

View from Castle Lake Trail

More than three years ago I posted a photo on my other blog showing Castle Lake from near the parking lot. Today’s photo is from the other direction looking back toward where I took that previous pic. The season is a bit different as well. Today’s photograph is from August. The other was from late spring. If you were to stand in this spot right now (December) you would be in several feet of snow, the lake wouldn’t have any people in it (if you click on the photo for a larger view you can see several kayaks), and Mt. Shasta would be completely white with snow.

We did a little hiking in the mountains near Mt. Shasta in California this past weekend. In today’s photo (covering about 180 degrees) you can see Castle Lake, Heart Lake (lower left corner partially obscured by trees), Black Butte, and (on the far right) Castle Crags.

Mt. Shasta from Lake Siskiyou

Yesterday we met up with friends at Lake Siskiyou in California near the town of Mt. Shasta. We got rained on in the car on the way down I-5 and could barely see Mt. Shasta so things weren’t looking good. Once we got there the rain resumed. However, after an hour or so the weather cleared and we headed to the beach.

The day turned into a great one as the skies cleared and the beach was nearly empty. The remaining clouds danced around Mt. Shasta for our viewing pleasure.

I attempted to take the same picture four times using four different settings (vivid green, vivid blue, vivid red, and sepia). The first three all look identical to my eyes. The sepia one came out kind of nice looking though.

We rented paddle boats and the kids went exploring.

Last, but not least, is a vertical shot (which probably looks better in a vertical blog than the others). They all look best if you click on them after maximizing your browser window.
