Summer Field Work #2

The Kohm-Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center opened in October 2008. It is a beautiful new building that replaced the Lassen Chalet. The building is of green construction like recycled glass counters and low flush toilets. The geology exhibits are well done. My favorites are trying to make a earthquake and of course anything on the Chaos Crags.

Continuing from my last entry, it was all clouds and rain, the entire weekend. I know there is a 10,000 ft volcano somewhere!

Oh, I forgot snow to add to the rain and clouds, the main park road had just opened the night before I got to Lassen, you might recognize this as the trail head to Lassen Peak. I am not even that crazy to attempt that!

This was the best view of Lassen Peak all weekend! The picture was taken to the east, looking back west at the plug dome.

Wonderful snowflowers to entire this trip. My next trip was in July.
