The Hotlum-Wintun Ridge

Mount Shasta - Hotlum-Wintun Ridge

The sun sets behind Mount Shasta's Hotlum-Wintun Ridge. The forecast called for perfect weather the following day; alas, Mount Shasta's fickle weather turned stormy overnight, quashing my summit hopes—though I still managed to ski the peak from just below 14,000 feet.
