Mount Shasta Hiking / Camping - Spring
05/18/2019 Region: California/Hawaii Activity Type: Camping Place: Mount Shasta, CA
My partner and I will be heading for Mount Shasta come spring some time -- possibly the middle of May of this year (2019). We plan to camp on one of the lakes in the area where you can see Mount Shasta reflected in the lake. We may do some backpacking. We will certainly do some hiking, as well as some swimming and laying about in the sun and stuff, relaxing.
Mount Shasta area is among the most beautiful places I've ever been to, and I miss the mountain a lot -- I live in far off New Mexico. If you'd like to join us, let's get in touch and plan it together. The dates are not settled, though middle of May seems like a good time.
Would be fun, but Shasta in the middle of May is still going to be pretty chilly.

And that was a LONG time ago. I wasn't thinking of going high up in the mountain, but staying down by the lake / lakes in the lower country. But I'll have to educate myself about seasons and temperatures and such before planning the trip. Is June better? I'm flexible.
I am not certain where I will be once school is out and teachers are on summer vacation. But I’d be interested in later in the summer (June or July).
Hmm. We have two guys leaning more toward sometime in June, rather than May. How do I edit the date? I'm happy to switch it to June.
