Clear Creek and Mud Creek on Mount Shasta
Shasta-Trinity National Forest, California

Mount Shasta, like other volcanoes, is extremely porous, and as a result has few meadows or streams and no real lakes. One exception is on the southeast slopes, where springs create a patch of green at the head of Clear Creek. It runs into the deep gorge of Mud Creek, below a pair of dramatic waterfalls.

One of Shasta's very few trails follows the edge of this canyon to the spring-fed meadows above timberline. A climbers route continues to the summit.
