Mt Shasta - Sept 1998

Mount Shasta is a 14,162 ft volcano located in Northern California, about 300 miles North East of the Bay Area. Although it is one of the highest mountains the US, its summit is only 6 miles from the Bunny Flat trailhead at 7000 ft. The mountain's incredible beauty had captivated Hippo and she had always wanted to climb it.
