This is Mt. Shasta, California. People forget that California is not all about freeways, beaches and crowded cities. This mountain is to the far north in the state. I was born in a small railroad town, Dunsmuir, on the south side of this beautiful mtn. I grew up in a little larger town on the NW side, called Yreka. When you live near a place like this you tend to take it for granted. When you move away, then drive back for a visit, you start watching for the Mtn to tell you that you are almost 'home'. This picture was taken on a patio outside the nursing home where my mother is currently living. I have been traveling back and forth every couple of weeks and Mt. Shasta is always there for me to enjoy.
