Corralled by the Cascade Range to the east and Coastal Mountains to the west, Interstate 5 travelers find the broad Shasta Valley spreading out from both sides of the Shasta River. Here in northern California the state's scenic wonders begin. This preview from the Shasta Valley Vista Point on I-5 points its sightseers toward the three Shastas, i.e., Shasta Lake, Shasta Dam and Mount Shasta. Depending on the weather, those eager to see these northern California marvels may have to drive a little further for clearer views.
