Lassen Volcanic National Park ,Grass Valley and Shasta Caverns

The past couple weeks I’ve been doing a little bit of exploring here and there.

Lassen Peak's North Side

I always love going to Lassen Volcanic National Park. Every season has something unique to offer. It’s amazing how much snow is still lingering for August.

Emerald Lake

This beautiful lake was shaped by a glacier and was named for its emerald green waters, caused by the abundant green algae, that grow on the warm shallow lake bottom.

Mud Bubbling

The remarkable hydrothermal features in Lassen Volcanic National Park include roaring fumaroles (steam and volcanic-gas vents), thumping mud pots, boiling pools, and steaming ground. Water from rain and snow that falls on the highlands of the park feed the hydrothermal system.

See it in action~

Rough and Ready

I went and visited a friend in the Grass Valley area. We went to the town of Rough And Ready. The town of Etna located in Western Siskiyou County was once called “Rough and Ready”. To avoid confusion its name was changed.

Bridgeport Covered Bridge

This bridge was designed by David Ingefield Wood, and built in 1862. It is used as a pedestrian crossing over the South Yuba River located in Nevada County.

Great swimming holes to cool off!

Shasta Caverns Tour

Monday, I guided a group down to the Shasta Caverns located on the McCloud Arm of Shasta Lake.

Stalagtites

Shasta Caverns offers unique stalagtite and stalagmite formations. 3 adventures in one. A boat from on Shasta Lake, a short bus ride to the cavern and a tour of the caverns.
