The Everitt Memorial Highway on Mount Shasta
Shasta-Trinity National Forest, California

Everitt Memorial Highway, named for a forester killed fighting a wildfire here, ascends steadily over 4000 feet from the center of the town of Mount Shasta to timberline. The highway first passes through plantations of Jeffrey pine planted in rows, then a natural forest of Shasta red fir.

The road is kept open year-round as far as Bunny Flat, a center for snow play in winter and starting point for summit attempts in summer. Near its end the road passes right alongside Panther Meadow, a site of spiritual significance to both Native Americans and New Age believers. It ends at the old Mount Shasta Ski Bowl site, demolished by an avalanche in 1978 and abandoned.
