Lassen Volcanic National Park

E-mail Print PDF


  Hi Deb,
    This summer I went to Lake Almanor in northern California.  We rented a house right on the lake.  I fished, swam, wake boarded and even parasailed--it was a blast!  We also visited Lassen Volcanic National Park.  It’s eerie to see the steam vents and bubbling mud holes.  It all smells of rotten eggs (sulphur), too.  Don’t stick your hand or toe in the streams trickling from the rocks--it’s boiling water!  If you get the chance go there sometime.

Editor’s Note:   Lake Almanor and Eagle Lake are located in Northeastern California’s Lassen National Forest (530-257-2151).  You’ll find summer fun at the lakes and forest as well as winter cross country skiing and snowmobiling.  Nearby Lassen National Park Ski Area has downhill skiing.  Lassen Volcanic National Park (530-595-4444) with volcano peaks, lava flows, fumaroles, mudpots and boiling springs and lakes, is located inside the Lassen National Forest.  Some routes are closed during winter.  This is a great adventure.  Thank you Jamie for sharing it with us.
