Place: Visit to Lassen National Park....

When we arrived at the dense conifer forest of Lassen National Park, it was an exhilarating moment...piles of snow, imposing peaks, giant boulders, lakes, sulfur springs, interesting flora it had it all.
An imposing peak ....






It was refreshing to walk among the Jeffrey, lodgepole and white pines, firs and hemlocks...
Here I am standing by a fire-burnt, dead tree....

Hubby is enjoying the tranquility....

Here, he has grabbed a lichen-encrusted twig and a pine cone...

I am happy to spot this lake in the forest...

The most-rewarding part was stumbling upon the patches of coral-red snow plants on the floor of pine forest...

and, when I discovered these wolf lichens carpeting almost all the pine trees.....



Both of my new-found wonders together on a bed of pine needles...
