Also see . . . Mount Shasta - Wikipedia. Mount Shasta is a potentially active volcano located at the southern end of the Cascade Range in Siskiyou County, California. At 14,179 feet it is the second highest peak in the Cascades and the fifth highest in California.... The California Gold Rush brought the first Euro-American settlements into the area in the early 1850s, including at Yreka, California and Upper Soda Springs. The first recorded ascent of Mount Shasta occurred in 1854 (by Elias Pearce), after several earlier failed attempts. In 1856, the first women (Harriette Eddy, Mary Campbell McCloud, and their party) reached the summit. (Submitted on September 27, 2015, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
