Mount Shasta - Northern California
An archive image from 20 November 2006. A date well into what should be Northern California's rainy season and Mount Shasta still stands bare - waiting for her cover of white snow. It is the beginning of what will be a three year drought in California.
California receives almost all of its rainfall between mid October and early April.
Mount Shasta creates and feeds the headwaters of the Sacramento River - California's largest. Seeing her this dry in late November is never a good sign for the many farmers to the south.
