The glow of morning on Mount Shasta is an incredible sight. The colors cast by the rising sun drench the mountain in pinks, reds, oranges and, ultimately, white. The sunrise is fleeting but for a brief moment the solitary mountain explodes in a technicolor display of staggering beauty. While sunset on Mount Shasta is easily enjoyed from the populated areas at the foot of the mountain, it can be difficult to appreciate the morning sunlight. This is because the east side of the volcano is difficult to observe and let finding a good vantage point from which to enjoy the spectacle can be challenging. Only the town of McCloud is particularly well positioned to enjoy the morning show. Nonetheless, for those who seek out a good vantage point, morning as an incredible time appreciate the awesome beauty of Mount Shasta.
