We’ve made the long drive on I-5 to Oregon many times. We always look forward to seeing Mount Shasta in every time. Located in the Cascade Range in Northern California, its serene beauty is just awe inspiring. We usually go on our trips earlier in the year and Shasta’s majestic peaks are normally covered in snow.  It was then shocking to see the 14,179-ft summit nearly bare.

Our thoughts flashed to global warming or drought. However, the Forecast Earth website features a story that says Shasta’s glaciers are actually growing despite the rise in overall global temperatures. From the looks of things though, you could’ve fooled us.
