Lassen Volcanic National Park – Journey 1

My first backing trip was at age ten with my Mom and a group of fellow mountain folk.  50 years later, I wanted to experience it anew.  And I’m very glad I did.  It’s a lovely park with woodlands, views, and…well…just interesting stuff!  My off-piste attempt at the summit of Lassen Peak was thwarted by a sketchy snowfield crossing at 10,000’…and I didn’t care.  The walk and time out in the Northern California wild was well worth it!!!
