June 29 - July 2, 2012: Mt. Lassen & vicinity, California

This was part of a multi-day road trip to northeastern California. The first photo-worthy spot was Castle Crags, which has its own album. After that we went down to Chico, then spent a couple nights in Chester and explored Lassen Volcanic National Park and the surrounding area. We headed home via Weed, Klamath Falls, Bend, Sisters, and McKenzie Pass; OR-242, the McKenzie Highway, had just opened for the season a few days earlier.
