sleeping giant

Northern California

looming at a height of over 14,000 ft (3300m), you certainly can't miss spotting giant Mt Shasta even while driving at speed on Interstate 5...this dormant volcano has a long history of violent eruptions

Hard to miss that stunning mountain! It was always a breathtaking view for me and no matter how often I saw it, never tired of its beauty. Your photo captures that magnificence well.
