Lassen Volcanic Natl Park

We took two nice hikes at Lassen.
The first was to see the mud pots (which as loyal readers know that I've been on the lookout for good mudpots since our visit to Yellowstone)...saw a few and also fumaroles (great word!) and other hot, roiling, earthen clay and mud. Delicious...

And we were accompanied by a class of third-graders with few budding naturalists - most dramatically gagging about the sulphuric smells and complaining "I'm dying," about the three-mile round trip hike. Nice to see and hear those few who were mesmerized by theses sites and exclaimed -- Cool - about these Hot features.
