From San Francisco to Seattle in 30 days – Day 8

September 11th, 2006 (Day 8): Bumpass Hell

This morning we did an easy and short 3 miles round trip hike to Bumpass Hell in Lassen Volcanic National Park, an area discovered by an early settler who severly burned a leg after falling into a boiling pool in this area full of hydrothermal features like mud pots and fumaroles. Today of course it is safe to explore it walking on wooden boardwalks. Seeing the colorful soil around this place under a blue sky and all the steaming springs and pots was a cool experience.
In the early afternoon on our way out of the park via the north entrance station we stopped at Manzanita Lake for a lunch picnic and a short walk to grasp a final view of Lassen Peak.
Then it was time to head further north. We made it to the town of Mount Shasta where we stayed in a nice little motel called “Swiss Holidy Lodge” with an excellent view of Mount Shasta.
