In wandering among the meadows and forests of these starkly majestic ranges, I have developed a profound appreciation of the flowering plants of Mount Shasta, California and the surrounding habitats. This online database and image archive is an expression of that love. My hope is that it may inspire you to seek out these plants for yourself, and in doing so, also become enriched as a steward of this wonderful landscape.
