Lassen is a fantastic place to visit. It is the only place on earth where you can see all four types of volcanoes: shield, plug, cinder cone and composite. You can hike to the top of Mt Lassen peak (10,457 ft), where there is snow year round. Lake Helen is a spectacular glacial blue, and my favorite hike is following the meandering King's Creek to the steps next to the falls. Just outside the National Park are McArthur-Burney Falls and Subway Cave Lava Tube.
