It think we can all agree that Mt. Shasta is a magical place. Just being in its presence provides strong, palpable emotions. Certainly, such natural beauty can invoke these sort of feelings, but is there more to the story?
Growing up, I frequently heard about the legends of Mt. Shasta –
- According to local Indian tribes, Mount Shasta is inhabited by the spirit chief Skell who descended from heaven to the mountain’s summit.
- In 1899, Frederick Spencer Oliver published A Dweller on Two Planets, which claimed that survivors from a sunken continent called Lemuria were living in or on Mount Shasta.
- In 1904, a British prospector named JC Brown claimed to have discovered a lost underground city beneath Mt. Shasta.
