世界七大聖山ｼｬｽﾀに旅行中です。14日にキャッスルレイクからハートレイクまでハイキングしました。 "Castle Lake and Heart Lake, Mt. Shasta"： We went hiking there on September 14, 2012, I'm now visiting Mount Shasta, one of the Seven Sacred Mountains of the world.
I left my house little south of LAX around 5 am, joined for more friends and drove northon I-5 Interstate Fwy. We stopped by at "Andersen's Pea Soup" in the middle of the way and had lunch. We arrived Mount Shasta area around 5:30 pm. It's 600 miles (960 km) distance away.
From Mt.Shasta City, We drove to "Mount Shasta Resort" and to "Castle Lake" and parked at the parking lot for Castle Lake. From there we hiked up from "Castle Lake" to "Heart Lake" for 45 to 50 minutes one way on the trail where there are no signs.
We started hiking around 10:30 am. There were several camping tents around the starting point of the hike trail. We could not find the trail division to right, because it was covered with those tents. After going straight for several minutes, we came back and found that trail division to the right. We hiked up the medium to hard sharp slope and reached Heart Lake in 45 minutes.

This time we hiked up the trail continuing the right side of Heart Lake for 10 minutes. We were able to reach the spot where you can view Mount Shasta in the center behind Castle Lake. (the first photo).
