Tomorrow morning early I will be starting out on my trip to Lassen Volcanic National Park, a southern approach to the national park I approached from the north 8 weeks ago. Here is my planned route (my car is at my brilliant friend‘s house in Mountain View).
When I was at Lassen earlier this summer, I fell in love a bit. If the Category dedicated to it was not enough of a hint, geology is a hobby. Lassen is one of the best places to nerd out over rocks that I have found. There are lava caves, huge boulders flung miles and miles from their original homes, and an entire area named the “chaos crags.”
Here are some of my favorite sights from my last, too short trip to Lassen:
More and better photos this weekend!
“The people I love the best
jump into work head first
without dallying in the shallows
and swim off with sure strokes almost out of sight.
They seem to become natives of that element,
the black sleek heads of seals
bouncing like half-submerged balls.” – Marge Piercy
