Mount Shasta’s Lenticular Clouds Looked Absolutely Stunning During NorCal’s First Winter Storm

Winter descended upon Northern California last week in the form of a winter storm that put up to three feet of snow in the mountains. High elevation areas like Tahoe, Lassen and the Eastern Sierras all received some beautiful snow, but it was the images of Mount Shasta during the storm that showed the true beauty of NorCal.




Amateur and professional photographers alike all took to social media to show Shasta during the storm, including its world-renown lenticular clouds surrounding the mountain. Here are some of our favorite photos during and after the storm:
