In going over the famous "Shasta
Route" of the Southern Pacific Company
the traveler ever finds something new to
excite, his 1 admiration and interest.
Starting at Portland, one traverses the
whole length of the Willamette valley,
the gem of the Northwest. Mt. Hood,
Mt. Jefferson and the Three Sisters and
other snow-capped peaks are kept in
sight for hours. The beautiful valleys
of the Umpqua and Rogue Rivers, with
their orchards of prunes, peaches, apples
and other fruits are a delight in them
selves. The crossing of the great moun
tain barrier between Oregon and Cali
fornia reveals the grandest mountain
scenery in the United Strtes. The won
derful turnings, twistings and doublings
of the railroad bring into view a grand
array of towering mountains and pro
found gorges into which we ga?.e from
dizzy heights, forest clad mountain
slppeb stretching up to the line of per
petual snow, and the foaming mountain
streams dashing fiercely down deep can
yons, now and then stopping for a short
reBt in some quiet pool. After a day's
enjoyment of old Mt. ShaBta, the finest
peak on the continent, we drop rapidly
down the canyon of the Sacramento to
the broad plains of the Sacramento val
ley in California, and thence through
vineyards and orchards to San Francisco.
