Shasta Lake is located in northern California, ten miles north of the city of Redding, with Lakehead Town at the northern side of the lake. This lake was formed by the damming of the Sacramento, Pit and Mc Cloud rivers and many other smaller tributaries. Surrounded by five hundred kilometers of mountains covered with evergreen trees, the sight is astounding and delightful. The reservoir exists due to the wonderful job done to build the Shasta Dam, a behemoth of pure concrete ranked as one of the great civil engineering wonders of the world, which is definitely worth to visit. The hydroelectric power plant located at the base of the dam provides with electricity to nearby cities and is the fourth largest hydroelectric plant in California.
