Lassen Volcanic National Park 2009

We finally made it to Lassen Volcanic National Park and Lassen National Forest!  But we went after (and during) the fires up there.  The surrounding area is beautiful and so is the starkness of the volcanic area.  We hiked the Bumpass Hell Trail (a moderate 3 mi rountrip hike) down to view the fumaroles and mudpots (this area is the largest hydrothermal area of the park).  The colors were fantastic (but not the smell)!

Sometimes stark but beautiful…
