Black Butte, the largest of Mount Shasta’s satellite volcanic peaks, is itself an iconic image of the Mount Shasta area. Black Butte rises directly over the interstate and it seems that the freeway is destined to run right into the peak’s rocky base. Though the peak does have a pyramid-like appearance, there are in fact multiple peaks, each the result of a separate eruption. #blackbutte  #mtshastaarea
