Mount Shasta is not connected to any nearby mountain and dominates the northern California landscape. It rises abruptly and stands nearly 10,000 ft (3,000 m) above the surrounding terrain. On a clear winter day snowy Mount Shasta can be seen from the floor of the Central Valley 140 miles (230 km) south. The mountain has attracted the attention of poets, authors, and presidents.
