This land came to me magically and it is a magical spot. Mount Shasta is a volcano that from one side has a slope like Mt. Fuji, This land is situated on a cat's paw of lava that poured out of the slope on the side about 1/3 of the way up. A native American shaman has determined that the spot on the highest point of the ridge is an ancient ceremonial site. I imagine that it was a place they went to sing songs into the echo chamber. To experience a night on this mountain is an awesome transcendental experience. If you are lucky enough to catch a sunset when thundershowers are moving through Shasta valley, it is almost a religious experience. If lightning is present, it is safer to go to your car because they are quite spectacular but probably dangerous. Sunsets are usually glorious and you have a 360 degree view of the mountain as it changes colors due to the sunset lighting layering out in maroons, deep purples, golds, and bright white snow peak. It is so quiet sometimes it is scary. The Milky Way is glorious especially during meteor showers and moon rises sometimes are outlined by the mountain. Great photography! Perfect for spiritual earth ceremonies but requires an exception to the usual camping agreement if higher numbers of people are planned. I'm cool, so we can come to a mutually acceptable agreement. However, if people start trashing up the place I will have to close it, because I'm not doing this for the income, I want to share it with others.
