Lassen Volcanic National Park is one of only five national parks with geothermal activity. The elevation can be tiring and the twisty cliffside roads are not for the faint of heart. But it’s worth it!
Lassen Volcanic National Park is home to steaming fumaroles, meadows freckled with wildflowers, clear mountain lakes, and numerous volcanoes. Jagged peaks tell the story of its eruptive past while hot water continues to shape the land.
My favorite hike was 4.6 miles to Devil’s Kitchen. Along the way I saw zero other people which makes it perfect for social distancing and means you can pee anywhere.
This tree was so tall I couldn’t get it in one shot.
Okay, I confess — I went through the back door.
