While heading north, we had to change our plans to visit Lassen Volcanic National Monument because the park was still covered in snow, so we headed to Castle Crags Wilderness instead.

The Castle Crags hike took us over steep volcanic rock formations to a summit with 360° views of the Castle Crags Wilderness and Mt. Shasta.

Following the hike, we headed to a free campground at Lake Shastina with views of Mt. Shasta.
