Lake Reflection

The Place

Mt. Lassen is an active, though currently dormant, 10,000 ft. volcano. The most southerly peak in the Cascade range, this area offers beautiful forested alpine lakes, unique geological features and sweeping views of northern California from Lassen痴 lofty peak. We will be joined by our friends from Outback NA on this retreat. On Friday, Outback NA will host a hike at Bumpass Hell, an area of mud pots, boiling pools and steaming vents. In the evening, we値l have a resentment burn meeting around the campfire. On Saturday we値l be hiking to the summit of Lassen Peak, a challenging but very rewarding hike offering views of northern California from the Tahoe Rim to Mt. Shasta. We値l have our traditional potluck dinner followed by a campfire meeting Saturday night. We値l be camping in the Lost Creek group campground sites 1,2, and 3. Check in time is 1 pm. We値l leave the campground at 2 pm to drive to Friday痴 hike. We値l leave the camp at 8 am to begin our hike at 9 am on Sat.
