LASSEN VOLCANIC NP, AUGUST 2009


Lassen was my 41st park.  From Tucson, I flew to Reno and drove to the Park, spending three days there.  The Mineral Lodge is a nice spot with good rooms, great food and a small store.  Being only 9 miles from the Park, it is close.  I found the southern half of the park more interesting, with Bumpass Hell, the Brokeoff, Lassen climbs, Mill Creek and the Summit Lakes region.  I do want to camp in the latter spot some day.  

During my stay, I hiked half way up Lassen, saw Bumpass Hell, hiked up Brokeoff, Mill Creek Falls and beyond and Summit Lakes loop.  It inspired the Medical Society column Two at Lassen on this blog.
