Here's Mount Lassen today, relaxed, snow bound, harmless -- except the scientists who study her know that she's liable to go again, but they aren't predicting when. Get your umbrellas ready, folks!
This is "Hot Rock," one of many pieces of dacite lava that built up in the crater after the initial eruption.
This area is called "Chaos Jumbles."
While recovery is well underway, there's still a lot for nature to take care of in the aftermath of such a large occurrence!
A more peaceful vista is enjoyed at Manzanita Lake just inside the northern entrance station.
The park road is 28 miles long, but it took us four and a quarter hours to travel the distance. We dined at the southern end of the road, then returned to the northern entrance in just over one hour.
