Two hikes at Lassen Volcanic National Park. One with lots of snow and several lakes, the other with a spectacular waterfall.

Things are pretty crazy at the sulfer works

hiking day 1: Where do you think the trail is?

hiking in snow

snow obscured the trail, so we tried to use the map to make sure we were close

maggie, lane, and courtney having fun in the snow

the first lake we saw was iced over

courtney, meg, and bryan reading the map and surveying the terrain from a high vantage point

clear mountain water

meanwhile, back at the cabin

hiking day 2: it's never a good omen when the trailhead sign is in snow, next to a fallen tree

but the trail was mostly clear


three streams converge at this waterfall

looking for a way to cross
