UDATE 7/27/2011 - Lassen Park finally opened last weekend due to all the snow - Over
600 inches at the 8,000 plus foot level where the road goes thru Lassen Pass to the
hiking trail to the top of the 11,000 plus foot peak. This road is usually cleared more than
two months earlier than it was this summer.
About 30 years ago I won a foot race to the top by about 5 minutes (in the good ole days). Here below are photos I took when Beckity and I drove thru most of Lassen Park this past weekend (which is only about 25 miles from our home). . We stopped short of the volcanic stuff, bubbling mud pots, etc. .. almost all the trails to this stuff still snowed in. Will include those photos after the next trip too.
This was to be our first tour stop .... so ... I am including it now so everyone can see what we had to miss.
