But not A.O. — a collection of adventurers were settled two hours north of town, playing Mafia around a campfire under a makeshift shelter and eating Dutch Oven peach cobbler at the base of the towering 6,500 feet high, once-glacier, now granite, mountain known as Castle Crags. 0208141736b Named for its castle-like dome surrounded by spires of granite, Castle Crags State Park is located two hours north of Chico just off Interstate 5, shortly before a northbound traveler would reach the Mt. Shasta. After a night of listening to the rain beating down on tents, a steep two-and-a-half mile trail brought the group of hikers from the camp-ground vista point, through the rainy forest, and to white rocky crags overlooking a fog-filled valley. 0209141127 Gallery bellow with additional photos by Justin Zazzi.[gallery type="square" ids="https://ao.csuchico.edu/AOBlog/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/dsc00037.jpg|,https://ao.csuchico.edu/AOBlog/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/dsc00032.jpg|,https://ao.csuchico.edu/AOBlog/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/i-wrn5q96-x2.jpg|,https://ao.csuchico.edu/AOBlog/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/dsc00041.jpg|,https://ao.csuchico.edu/AOBlog/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/i-5gd9tlm-x2.jpg|,https://ao.csuchico.edu/AOBlog/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/i-fgjjjtj-x2.jpg|,https://ao.csuchico.edu/AOBlog/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/dsc00058.jpg|"]
