John Everitt Vista Point

Take a closer look at Mt. Shasta (14,179 ft.) – one of the Cascade Ranges’ most striking composite volcanoes – on a 15 mile scenic drive that passes Bunny Flat, a major trailhead for day hikers and mountain climbers. A subject for many Native American myths, the Shasta Indians believed that the Great Spirit first created the mountain by pushing down ice and snow through a hole from heaven, then using the mountain to step onto the earth. Mt. Shasta is often visited by spiritual sojourners for its perceived sacred qualities. Its sphere of influence is great from most any view.
