Lassen Volcanic National Park

From Bubbling Pots to Plug-Dome Volcanoes

We have never heard from anyone about Lassen National Park. In fact we did not know the real name is Lassen Volcanic National Park.  As we left our daughter's home in Paradise, California, Lassen was a short jaunt.

We were very surprised and pleased with our decision to visit.  The park is full of dormant volcanoes, boiling springs, mud pots, steam vents, trees and mountains galore.  The park encompasses 165 square miles, has 200 hundred natural lakes and hundreds of miles of hiking trails.

We visited in early September. The weather was beautiful and the crowds few. We only had the squirrels to keep us company.

We could only stay for the weekend as there is no cell service and we need to be accessible by our clients. 

This is a great park to hike, relax and enjoy beauty as God created it.  See more at Lassen Volcanic National Park
