We are back to dry camping in a National Park and loving it! No: Water, Electric, Sewer, cell phone, TV,
cable, newspapers, or even Satellite TV (too many trees).
We have a great site, in the woods, many birds and chipmunks, and peace and quiet. Also, we are now
out of season and only about 20% of the sites are taken.
We did not know much about this NP before arriving here. As it turns out Lassen volcano was the last to erupt in the lower 48 states prior to Mt. Saint Helens. This area of California is loaded with extinct volcano’s. It is along the fault line which starts in southern CA and continues through Alaska.
Lassen Volcano erupted at least in two time periods; the first 27,000 years ago and then again with over 390 eruptions recorded from 1914 to 1921. It’s most famous eruptions were in1914 & 15. Lassen was made a National Monument by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906 and a National Park by Congress in 1916. Many of the peaks surrounding Lassen were also volcanoes.
