Scenic Sunday Drive – Lake Shasta and Mt Shasta in Northern California [Video]

Today’s Scenic Sunday Drive is in northern California along Interstate 5 between Redding and the Oregon state line.

Also known as the Cascade Wonderland Highway, this stretch of road is one of the more scenic drives in California.

[Each Sunday I plan to release a scenic drive from somewhere around the country for your viewing pleasure. I don’t plan to narrate these, although I may include some informational banners if appropriate. The point is to just enjoy the scenery.]
