Day 155 – Mount Shasta – Cascade Loop

Day 155 of Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

Mount Shasta Cascade Loop

Petey and I awoke to another glorious day!  My weather app on my iPhone forecasts wonderful weather all week. I hope it is right!  We began the morning driving A10 toward Mount Shasta.  It makes a relatively easy climb nearly half-way to the glacier-clad summit where it dead ends.  Many winter enthusiasts were strapping on cross-country skies while I simply turned VANilla around and headed back down the mountain.  The drive afforded some fantastic views, but it was so nice outside, I would have rather just found a trailhead leading into Shasta-Trinity National Forest.
