For the most part Lassen Volcanic National Park is a very dry, desolate sort of place, as seen in the Chaos Craigs and Jumbles.
There are also a few really beautiful lakes there. Lake Helen is a deep blue jewel of an alpine lake .
At Manzanita Lake, the fishing is good. To see my favorite photo of the fisherman, please visit the California section of my website, wavetailart.com.
