This was an interesting stop to see the effects of an avalanche. The rocks in places are over 130 ft. Deep.

Read up on the geology of this place first. You'll get a lot more out of the visit if you do. Rocks everywhere. It's amazing to think that all these rocks came from the side of that mountain.

How can such a beautiful area be the site of such destruction? Volcanoes are a powerful source of nature.

If you don't follow the park map, it's easy to drive past this turn-out and miss the jumble of rocks. Hiking is a little tough, but seeing the crags and listening to the peacefulness of the area made for a great stopping point.

We stopped at the Museum first, as we drove through from north to south, and I thought 7 bucks was a bit expensive for the guide book, but it was so worth it! I understand they also have a app for smart phones. Without it...More

This is another fascinating aspect of Lassen. Be sure and read the interpretive sign that explains the crags and jumbles.

Interpretive signs give a quick information about more recent events at Lassen (i.e. last century). One can see most from the view point without a hike.
