Here is icy Shasta fifteen miles away yet at the very door. It is all close wrapt in clean young snow down to the very [ base?] [illegible] Mass of white from the dense black forests girdle at an elevation of five or Six thousand feet to the very summit The extent of its individuality is perfectly wonderful. When I first caught sight of it over the braided folds of the Sacramento Valley I was fifty miles away & afoot alone & weary yet all my blood turned to wine
