Mt. Shasta is there to make you happy

If you are thinking of huge, then your dreams will take you to Mount Shasta (14179 foot) for the ultimate hiking experience, fly-fishing or flat-water paddling in this northern state. Along with San Francisco waterfront, Disneyland, Redwood Empire, Monterey/Big Sur, Tahoe and Yosemite, Mount Shasta is another popular destination in California.

Mountain Climbers practice

Each year, around this time a special breed of rock climbers resides at the base of Hotlum Glacier – on Mt. Shasta’s north side. These Hotlum Mountains are heavily riddles and glaciated with yawning crevasses. Here the climbers are taught to deal with these hazards by inching their way up to Hotlum Glacier.

All of them practice dropping to ground with ice axes planted on the snow. They also focus on the self rescue proficiency by lowering them back and then pulling back up with short ropes curled many times across the main rope.

New Dispensers for Dogs

Now, dog owners have no excuse while enjoying the beauty of Mount Shasta parks. The Shastice Park as well as Mount Shasta City authorities have installed brand new dispensers which are full with bags for cleaning dog’s poo.

Mike Rodriguez, the District administrator of Mount Shasta Recreation and Parks, told that dog owners are urged to use these bags. With 2 dispensers have been placed in each park and signs are there at other places as well to let the local visitors and travelers know that the bags are there and it would remind them to the correct thing.
