Lassen Peak and Manzanita Lake
Volcanic National Park,
California (June 2002)
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a National
Park ranger when I grew up. I never quite got my wish, but at last
count, I had visited 210 of the 394 National Parks in the U.S. I
especially enjoy the lesser-known parks like Lassen in northern California,
one of my 10 Favorite National Parks in the U.S..
It's off the beaten path so not many people know about it, but it's
a sensational place. I spent about a week here.
