We were at the visitor center at Lassen National Park poring over the map. For a nature lover there are many interesting things to do here. I knew what I must to do the minute i saw the picture of the Cinder Cone Trail. Lassen has no dearth of volcanic domes – around 30 in all. May be I am hopelessly lost when it comes to certain things – but look at Cinder cone – doesn’t it look special ?? This is a 700 ft high Volcanic cone , which has been dormant for over a century (at least). It is hard to resist an opportunity to check out the place from where earth’s fury has been unleashed over and over !!
