"On a trip to Shasta take your wife and the children: Take a clear conscience and a contented mind; take a sweet temper; take your cares and bury them before you start. Take time enough to see this charming country and may you live long and prosper."

An antique booklet called "Shasta: They Keystone of Califonia Scenery" takes you on a journey from Redding, CA all the way up the Pacific Coast, pointing out the mountains, scenery and points of interests along the way. Mossbrae Falls, Lower Soda Springs, Mt. Shasta, Mt. Hood, Mt. Ranier and beyond.

Beautiful illustrations with gentle colors and lots of great text. A great piece of vintage advertising/ephemera!
