A prominent rock feature on Mount Lassen is the “Eye of Vulcan”.   In Roman mythology, Vulcan was the God of Volcanoes and Fire.  Mount Lassen Volcano last erupted in 1915.  Mount Lassen and Mount St. Helens are the only two volcanoes on the West Coast to erupt in the 20th century.  Wildflowers thrive in the volcanic soil.
