Tahoe and Lassen  
It's been a crazy weekend. Traveling to Tahoe and Lassen National Park meant new places added to my list of travel destinations in the US, but spending so much time on the road meant that both places weren't satisfactorily experienced. There's always next time. However, this was my very first trip to an active volcanic area and I'm intrigued by Lassen National Park. The park still has a lot of snow and the main road through the park is closed, so maybe a trip in the summer is a must-do. Anyway, enough words, time for the pictures.

Yay, you finally did it. I told you that you would like Lassen. Try towards the end of June. The roads should be open, but you will still get the snow and lots of the tiny lakes will still have some amazingly coloured ice on them, but there will also be wildflowers and the geothermal activity as well.

Now that I've seen a little bit of Lassen, I surely want to go during the summer! :-)

Listen to me, I know the national and state parks of the West!
