From the 14,000 ft. peak of Mt. Shasta to the Klamath River corridor, there’s no doubt about it, Siskiyou County has amazing scenery. But if you think the view from your car is stunning, imagine taking it in from a hot air balloon, ascending shortly after dawn to watch the sun rise over the Shasta Valley — literally heavenly. Shasta Valley Balloons in Montague offers hot air balloon rides by reservation over the beautiful Shasta Valley north of Mt. Shasta. The Montague Balloon Festival is held each year in late September.
