A great day for a hike!
Friday's hike took us up to Horse Camp
Halfway up Mt Shasta and only 1.7 miles
from Bunny Flat. However it was a 2000'
foot gain in elevation! Hard going up,
but easy going down!
Mt Shasta in the distance
Fields of flowering Lupin
Moss covered old trees
After only perhaps an hour
we all arrived to eat a very early lunch!
This stone cabin was built for mountain climbers in 1923. Mostly indigenous materials were used for construction, including volcanic rock and Shasta Red Fir. The lodge can be used for emergency shelter for climbers. Other features of Horse Camp include a freshwater spring, low impact campsites and a solar-powered composting toilet facility.
This is the closest we've been to
this magnificent mountain.
We all made it! It was a perfect hike!
