How High Is Mount Shasta?
Rising out of forests and meadows, Mount Shasta is known for its natural beauty and powerful spiritual presence. The still-active volcano is one of the highest peaks in the Cascade Range. At 14,179 feet (4,322 meters) in elevation, visible throughout most of Shasta County, it is the fifth highest mountain in California, and the second highest mountain in the Cascade Range (Mount Rainier is 249 feet higher), and the 46th highest mountain in the United States. Mount Shasta is an ultra-prominence peak with 9,822 feet (2,994 meters) of prominence, making it the 96th most prominent mountain in the world and the 11th most prominent mountain in the United This huge mountain rises 11,500 feet (3,500 meters) above its base; has a base diameter larger than 17 miles; can be seen from 150 miles away on a clear day; and has a mass of 350 cubic kilometers, comparable in volume to other stratovolcanoes like Mount Fuji and Cotopaxi. The History Of Mount Shasta And Its Area Shasta County was first unofficially called Reading County after Major Pierson B. Reading, and included the extreme northern part of California. Reading was its first known permanent white settler. In February 1850 Shasta County was created as one of California's original 27 counties. In September of that same year California was admitted into the Union, meaning that Shasta County was even older than the State of California. Before Shasta County was named, Shasta residents held a town meeting in the middle of Main Street and named their town Shasta, presumably because Mt. Shasta could be seen from the hills of town. A few other names were suggested, but Shasta was the chosen winner. Shasta County was created a short time later the same year. Possibly because Mt. Shasta was the dominating mountain within the proposed boundaries of the county, the county was naturally named Shasta County as an extension of the town of Shasta, which by this time was already the major distribution point and commercial center for the surrounding mining area. Originally Mt. Shasta was within Shasta County, but it is now part of Siskiyou County. The original Shasta County included a major portion of Northern California, including Mt. Shasta and all the territory that later became Modoc, Lassen and Siskiyou counties as well as parts of present day Plumas and Tehama counties. The first county seat was temporarily located at the ranch of Major Pierson B. Reading. It moved from there to Shasta in 1851, and to Redding in 1888. The first three important in Shasta County settlements were Shasta, Horsetown and Lower Springs. The first five major industries were fur trapping, logging, gold mining, agriculture and copper mining. Mount Shasta Volcanic Eruptions Mount Shasta is a large stratovolcano with four overlapping volcanic cones. Besides its main summit, Shasta has a 12,330-foot (3,760 meters) satellite volcanic cone called Shastina. Shasta has erupted periodically over the last 600,000 years and is considered an active volcano. A period of mountain building between 600,000 and 300,000 built Mount Shasta until the north side of the volcano collapsed. Over the last 20,000 years, volcanic episodes have continued to build the mountain with lava flows and dacite cones. The Hotlum Cone has erupted several times in the last 8,000 years, including a large eruption over 220 years ago that was noted by La Perouse, a French explorer, who saw the eruption from the coast in 1786. Several hot sulfur springs near the summit indicate that the mountain is still active. The last confirmed eruption of Mt Shasta happened in 1786 and was observed by the explorer La Pérouse from his ship. How Did Mount Shasta Get It's Name? No one knows. The name of Shasta has been the subject of much discussion for many years. However it is said that Peter Skene Ogden, a chief trader with the Hudson's Bay Company, is given credit for naming Mount Shasta on February 14, 1827, after the Native Americans who lived in the area. The first reference to the word Shasta was made in 1814 by British explorer and fur trapper Alexander Henry who wrote about the Shastasta tribe of Indians living at the mountain. Another version suggests Shasta is a corruption of the Russian word Tchastal, meaning white or pure mountain; Russian fur trappers were in the area from 1812 to 1842. In 1827, Hudson's Bay Co. brigade leader Peter Skene Ogden wrote in his diary, "I have named this river Sastine River. There is a mountain equal in height to Mt. Hood or Vancouver, I have named Mt. Sastine " In later years the words Shasty, Sastise, Chasta, Shastasla, Sasta, Sasty, Chasty, Chestet, Shastl, Tcheste, and Tschastl were used, all references to Mt. Shasta. Mail to the early Shasta residents arrived addressed to Shastala, Sastie, Sasty and Shasty. Shasta is an African female name originating in the Sahara. Its meaning is Precious Water. Shasta is also a generic Sanskrit term meaning "a teacher". The Power of Mount Shasta Those who live in the town of Mount Shasta will tell you stories of encounters with Lemurians, the underground hidden city of Telos, Saint Germain, and alien landings. But by far they sense a certain special feeling that comes with being in the presence of Mount Shasta's vital energy or vortex. Our ancient ancestors knew a vortex or a gathering place of the earth's energy was sacred. This special mountain has such a vortex. Ancient cultures considered these vortexes, portals to a higher dimension of consciousness.
Mount Shasta is also considered to be a portal. Portals aree typically located a few tens of thousands of kilometers from Earth where the geomagnetic field meets the onrushing solar wind. Most portals are small and short-lived; others are yawning, vast, and sustained. ... Mingling lines of magnetic force from the sun and Earth criss-cross and join to create the openings. However the portals on the planet itself, such as Mount Shasta, are of a permanent nature, linked directly to the Earth Chakras of Mother Earth. When someone is near a vortex it activates and energizes their etheric or energetic bodies, whilst a portal, also knows as a stargate, is the door to making it possible for someone to become aware of what mystics have discovered...our existence is in fact multi and inter dimensional.
