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!!!
