On December 21, winter officially arrived in Northern California with Winter Solstice – the shortest day of the year. There was much to celebrate this year as a series of large storms entered the region, and Mount Shasta always knows how to celebrate. This year’s Winter Solstice brought a stunning lenticular cloud over the mountain signaling the incoming storms and marveling onlookers.
For anyone who doesnâ€™t know, Mount Shasta is well-known to marvel onlookers with a lenticular cloud show every now and again, and seeing the beautiful sight never gets old.
