Lassen Volcanic National Park is located in northeastern California.
The dominant feature of the park is Lassen Peak, the largest plug dome volcano in the world.

making it a tortuously long drive.

MY DAILY EMAIL SENT ON JULY 28, 2014
Hello folks,

I left Yreka, California this morning at 7:30. It was a 100 mile drive south on I-5 to Redding. After that I spent the rest of the day on California Highway 89. A narrow, winding and often under construction road. And I got to travel on it for 235 miles. Yippy! About 40 miles east of Redding I visited Lassen Volcanic National Park. The park was actually quite nice. Very peaceful and not a lot of people around. In the picture below you can see Lassen Peak along with a stream and a little waterfall.



Below is beautiful Lake Helen also in Lassen.



There was some really pretty scenery in the park. It was nice having blue sky unlike yesterday.



After Lassen it was a 165 mile drive on my winding narrow path. I finally got to Squaw Valley around 3:00. I spent an hour there riding the tramway to the top of the mountain.



It was 30 more miles to my hotel in South Lake Tahoe. The road was under heavy construction and it took 90 minutes to get there. I am staying at Harvey's Casino on the State Line. Below is a picture of Lake Tahoe from my room.



I'm pooped, I'm going to bed now.
