Description - Shasta River - Yreka to Klamath Run.

Driving north on Interstate 5 I've gotten glimpses of a deep canyon just north of Yreka, but I've always continued driving north to kayak on other rivers. Now that I know a little more about the Shasta River I'm interested to try kayaking on this whitewater. This is a rainy season winter run. (Siskiyou County, California, USA)
