That is Mt. Lassen you can barely see in the distance in the first picture. Helen and I took a long drive to see the park. Mt. Lassen, in northern California, is what's left of a huge volcano that erupted back in the early 1900's. It's still active as you can see by the thermals below. It's really awesome to stand beside the thermals and actually feel the boiling beneath you, smell the sulfur and feel the rumble of the boiling resonate through your body. The sidewalk and road are really warm to the touch. It's almost unbelievable that you can stand on top of all this activity right beneath your feet. Amazing! To see more pictures click here.
