Total miles driven so far: 714.5

What an amazing day! We left Reno fairley early and drove northwest through California to Lassen Volcanic National Park. What amazing scenery as we drove up the side of the last volcano to erupt in the US prior to Mount St. Helens. Above the snowline we dicovered that the road we were on had only been opened for a couple of weeks (they had 42 feet of snow this winter and a lot of it was still around).

Given that Iona and Calum will probably write much more eloquently about the day, I thought that I would share some photos.

To see bigger and better versions along with a whole lot more, you can always take a look at my flickr account.
