I hope you forgive me for jumping around. With the internet a strange and unusual unreliable, I’m hopping to today. I’ll jump back I promise.

Lassen Volcanic National Park is forty miles from the campground.

It gets colder as we travel the narrow winding road up over five thousand feet into the snow-clad forest. Aspen, Ponderosa Pine, and Redwoods crowd the road.

I’d say over four inches of snow fell last night.

The roads further in the park are closed, but we see the Devastated area.

 

 

 

 

 

A horrendous explosion on May 19, 1914 blew the side off the mountain. The damage is clear even a hundred years later.
