Lassen peak trail is only open 4 weekends a year while they restore the trail. Labor Day weekend is one of those times. We decided to make it an annual event. Isn't the peak spectacular? There are views like this all over the park!
Here we are at the base of the trail.
Abby walked about 25% of the trail. David carried her the rest of the way. I am pretty impressed with both of them!
The saddle with Mt Shasta in the background.
Love this shot!
The final ascent up the summit block. Josh practiced a "summit dance" to do at the top, but there really wasn't enough room. Only about 2 at a time on the actual rock that sticks up the highest. We took turns climbing up.
Saturday we hiked out to an area with geothermic activity. The kids did not like the smell, but it was very interesting.
