Drive & Picnic at Lassen National Park



On my Monday day off, we had the joy of borrowing our friend’s convertible and driving the mere 50 miles to Mt. Lassen Volcanic National Park.  The vistas are breathtaking and it is only a short drive away!  Most of the drive is scenery all the way there and back, so Jackie’s convertible was a treat for this short outing.  We were spontaneous, so on the way we stopped in Shingleton and bought some food and drinks.  Indeed, I will go back soon and do more than picnic. I want to return and climb to the Lassen Peak and the boiling mud pools called Bumpas Hell.  Very cool. 

Wanna go on a hike with me?
