I sure didn’t capture it by camera, but the Cinder Cone at Lassen Volcanic National Park, the painted dunes around it, and a beautiful campsite on Snag Lake made for a great weekend hike. I’ve never seen anything like the iridescent dunes and they along with the views of the snow-covered peaks where great. Heck, I even liked the dusty, sun-baked slog up the cone.
The mosquitos were out in force a short way above the Twin Lakes, but the breezes on the peninsula at Snag Lake kept them at bay.
This is definitely a place worth revisiting!
