Heading to the top of Siskiyou Pass, at 4,310 ft elevation, the highest point on Interstate 5, as it travals through California, Oregon and Washington States. This area is part of the 
Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument and is as diverse as it is beautiful.

I first thought the apple tree was on fire this morning thru the cold hard frost in the Siskiyou Mountains.

Looking at Black Mountain with Mt. Shasta peaking behind it and Goose Nest, also of the Cascade Range, laying on the horizon line on the left. Black Mountain is part of the Siskiyou Range which follows the Klamath River from the Pacific Coast and turns north toward the California Oregon border. The geologically old Klamath Mountains meet the Siskiyou Mountains here ar Siskiyou Pass on Interstate 5, following the Klamath River south from Oregon into California. At any one time you are probably traversing more than two mountain ranges in this area plus. Hornbrook California, which sits in this little valley right at Black Mountain, was a very important rest stop for the pioneers and travelers coming down the Oregon Trail.

I can't get enough of our majestic Mt. Shasta in N. California. Part of the Cascade Range, Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen, 120 miles south of here, are considered the lower Cascade. This mountain range extends north into Oregon and Washington states.

Blue Hour high in the Siskiyou Mountains of N. California. Normally I prefer cloudy days for photography, but this winter light is definetely mesmerizing.

Colors and shadows heading north through the Siskiyou Mountains of N. California. Appreciating all BLM Bureau of Land Management does for our public lands, especially here in the wild west.

Pilot Rock in the Soda Wilderness, nestled among the Siskiyou and Klamath Mountains, was used to guide travelers through the maze of these steep mountains. It can be seen as far away as Shasta Valley south of here and way far north in S. Oregon as you travel south. Pilot Rock is part of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument and is managed by Bureau of Land Management BLM out of Medford, Oregon. BLM manages most of the wild lands across the United States and they do a darn good job. If you love wild country, check out BLM websites no matter where you live in the U. S.

Shasta River Canyon road in N. California. If you pull in you can just see Interstate 5 south as it winds through Andersons Grade in the Siskiyou Mountains on the way to Shasta Valley. In Shasta Valley you 
would see the Trinity Mountains and the Cascade Range with Mt. Shasta standing tall and majestic.

Even the clouds add to the illusion everything is crooked. Heading south on I 5 in N. California, Siskiyou Mountain Range. If you pull in, you can just see the top of Mt. Shasta. We have just crossed the highest point on Interstate 5, over 4000 ft and at the border of California and Oregon. This area is part of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.

Klamath River at the confluence of the Shasta River in N. California. This sacred river flows thru some of the wildest country in the United States on it's way to the Pacific Ocean. The four dams on this 263 mile long river, which starts in Oregon, will be coming down in 2020. Eventually, this river, and it's tributaries like the Salmon River, Scott River and Shasta River, will begin their journey to becoming healthy, wild and vibrant again.

Ridgelines. Siskiyou Mountains in N. California. This huge mountain range starts by the mouth of the Klamath River by the Pacific Ocean. It follows the Klamath east till it hits mid N. California. Here it takes a loop north into Oregon, skirting both Oregon and N. California.

Majestic Mt. Shasta in N. California. The skies have been clear which is unusual. Especially for the Cascade Range. Usually this sacred mountain creates her own weather, covering herself up in clouds of snow.

Beautiful Mt. Ashland covered in snow heading down the Siskiyou Pass in S. Oregon. Sure starting to feel like the holidays. Part of the Cascade-Siskiyou Monument, this beautiful mountain holds Mt. Ashland Ski Park and recreation area. All this land in the monument is managed by BLM..Bureau of Land Management out of the Medford office. These folks work hard and help keep our public lands safe and open.

Wanted to post one more of Mt. Shasta with a zoom on the pic. There is really no way from the ground to show just how huge this incredible mountain is. If you ever want to experience something totally unreal, magical and awesome, find a way to visit this sacred mountain and the Shasta Valley in N. California.
