A Room with a View
The Mt. Shasta expedition, lead by Shasta Mountain Guides, is spectacular. Climbers enjoy a leisurely hike on Day One to historic Horse Camp (7,950 ft) before ascending to Lake Helen (10,400 ft) on Day Two. There is actually no water at Lake Helen. It is a flat platform resembling a perfectly formed lakebed. A prime perch for tents, socializing, and snow school.
Many thanks to climbers Dave Walsh and Monica Tracey for snapping this photo from their tent door. What a beautiful day to take in the mountains.
