Once upon a time I went on real hikes. I hiked up a goddamn volcano, and I have the picture to prove it.
Lassen National Park is at the southern extent of the Cascades Range in California. There are fragile wetlands, desolate lava flow areas, hot springs and mud pots, and the trail to the top of Mt. Lassen, which last erupted in 1917.
I scanned a few pictures from the day I drove through the park. I only had time to hike to the top and continue on my way, but there was some nice scenery along the park roads.
Proof, bitches. Mount Shasta is in the far distance.
