We started off the day by filling up with gas and getting a car wash to remove the dust and dirt on the car from yesterdays adventure. Our one and only park for today is the Lassen Volcanic National Park in California. Having been to many volcanic parks, we thought we had seen everything to see, so we had pretty low expectations. Were we wrong! This national park has it all, mountains, streams, lakes, and active volcanic action. This nights blog will be mainly pictures.
Fires consumed a large tract of forest.
This park is one of the last to open because of snow, which was plentiful.
As I said earlier, the variety of land features is fantastic
This is Sulphur Works where there is a huge mud pot which was at a full boil and blowing off steam.
The mud pots were almost to the end of the park drive. We drove to the visitors center where Babs and Doe got their passports stamped and we had a picnic lunch.
Tonight we are at Harrah’s Hotel & Casino in Reno, NV. We had a buffet dinner which I’ll have to say is the best buffet that I’ve had at a hotel in a very long time. After dinner, three card poker, $100 down, go write blog!
Doe has a cold and we all need a “break” day to unwind so we’ll be here until Saturday morning.
Babs Says: Shared the elevator with 3 humans and NINE dogs ranging in size from a Great Dane to a Chihuahua. Turns out they were performers from Circus-Circus doing a convention show here.
