Freshman, Ryan Beaty says “My favorite place to go to in Redding is Shasta Lake because you can catch a bunch of fish there and you have a chance to catch a big one.”
Another student Senior, Connor Rowe says “My favorite place to go is Heart Lake over by Mount Shasta. It has a nice place to hike too that overlooks the entire lake. The lake itself is super pretty.”
