White, Clean, Pure

Mount Shasta, peeking above the horizon, is clearly seen on a night with significant moonlight.

Mount Shasta is a potentially active volcano at the southern end of the Cascade Mountain Range.  It is the second-highest peak in the Cascades and the fifth-highest in the state of California.  

According to Wikipedia, the origin of the name "Shasta" is vague, perhaps from Russian meaning "white, clean, pure" or "happiness, luck, fortune, felicity" and given to the mountain by the early Russian settlers in California.  

I'll take either.
