Photograph of a post-and-rail fence leading along a road toward Mount Shasta, ca.1900. The dirt road in the left foreground leads to the base of the mountain in the background. Wooden fences separate the road from the inhabited land to the left and the right. Utility poles line the road at left, while a few buildings can be seen to the left of the road towards the background. The road and surrounding areas are lightly covered in snow. Compares to CHS-5975.; "Mount Shasta is located in the Cascade Range in northern California about 65 kilometers (40 miles) south of the Oregon-California border and about midway between the Pacific Coast and the Nevada border. One of the largest and highest of the Cascade volcanoes, snow clad Mount Shasta is near the southern end of the range that terminates near Lassen Peak. Mount Shasta is a massive compound stratovolcano composed of overlapping cones centered at four or more main vents; it was constructed during a period of more than 100,000 years." -- unknown author.
