LASSEN VOLCANIC NATIONAL PARK
July is mountain travel time. The wife, who is still working, has but a month to hit the road for any extended period of time and that month is July. We had originally planned an extended trip to Glacier National Park but life, as it does, grabbed us by the scruff of the neck and said, "Uh no". We made do with a fabulous week in that Northeastern California gem Lassen National Park. To avoid the monotony and angry big agriculture homemade signs along Highway 5 we took the longer and much more beautiful drive up Highway 395.
