Volcano Country

2009.04.29
pixel
Mount Lassen resides in Lassen Volcanic National Park. It's last eruption was in 1915 when it blew the cap out leaving what you see today. Imagine a huge peak protruding skyward between the peak on the left and the ragged remnants on the right.

A closer view

We drove off road for quite a long ways along a cinder road, and the reward was some incredible views of Lassen
pixel
One last parting shot of Lassen. Air quality was pretty hazy.

Turning to the west, from the same cinder road as above, is Mt Shasta
pixel
We caught this view about 15 minutes before the clouds moved in obscuring it completely. Mt Shasta has some mystical powers, according to Indian lore, and some local fanatics!

One last shot of Mt Shasta

Burney Mountain, shot taken from our property looking west. Burney is south of Shasta and north of Lassen

Easter vacation, after our Pyramid Lake weekend (previous post) catdad & I headed farther north and west to Fall River California to visit friends & to check on our property. We drove through Lassen National Park, home of Mt Lassen, a still active volcano. Across the valley is Mt Shasta, another active volcano. Gorgeous country. It took us an extra hour or two to get there because we kept stopping to take pictures.


Enjoy!
