Cinder Cone At Lassen – On The Hiking Trail

Cinder Cone - Lassen

 

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 !!

Are We There Yet! – 5 Incredible Things to Do In Summer

Ode To Road Trips

 A  few  rocks to  climb , big and  small
Fellow wandering souls,  to  meet and greet
Swap a few tales, old and  new
Smell the  mountain air,  feel the  salt in your hair
All that  happens  here,  while someone  pipes in from behind
“Are  we  there yet !!”

Now  that is a family road trip  for  you !!!
