We decided to go to Lassen Volcanic National Park to see the volcano. The GPS took us the windy backway. The higher we climbed, the colder it got. After about an hour and a half, we were actually in the snow. The Volcano was closed due to weather, but we had a beautiful drive in the snow.


We then drove to the Lake Shasta Caverns. We arrived in time for the 2:00 p.m. trip. The Lake Shasta Caverns are a network of caves located near the McCloud arm of Shasta Lake.

We crossed Lake Shasta in a pontoon boat; then took a mile trip up the mountain in a bus. Rachael was our tour guide.

There were over 600 stairs in the caverns – quite a hike but worth it!!!
