Mysteries of the Mountain

The opening words to my latest Mysterious Universe article...

"Situated on the southern tip of the vast and mountainous Cascade Range – which encompasses parts of British Columbia, California, Washington State, and Oregon – Mount Shasta is a huge, all-dominating peak that, at nearly fifteen thousand feet, is the fifth tallest mountain in the Golden State, and one that has been home to human civilization, in varying degrees, since around 5,000 B.C. It’s also a mountain steeped in matters mysterious, unearthly, and deeply ancient.

"Indeed, the interior of Mount Shasta is said to house the last vestiges of a mighty, renowned race of legendary people that dominated the planet in the fog-shrouded past. They were known as the Lemurians and were said to have inhabited a now sunken land, possibly situated somewhere in either the Pacific or Indian Ocean."
