Mount Lassen: Frozen Lake Helen in July!

Mount Lassen Peak and Frozen Lake Helen in July

Mount Lassen Volcano National Park is a 4 hour drive north of San Francisco.  This beautiful park is perfect for hiking.  Even when temperatures top 100 degrees in the valley below, it is often a pleasant 70 degrees at the top of Mount Lassen.  Lake Helen is often still frozen in early July!  Trails lead past mountain streams and meadows of wildflowers at the lower elevations  in early summer.

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
