2018 National Parks. Week 11: Lassen Volcanic

This week, we’re heading to Northern California and the breathtakingly-beautiful Lassen Volcanic Park. Our inspiration photo is courtesy of the always-stunning photography of National Geographic and their guide to the park, from which we learned a great deal.

Did you know that the volcano was slowly erupting from June 1914 through May 1915? And then, through June 1917, it erupted with more force and ash and steam, but has been relatively quiet ever since? In the one park, you can walk past and up and around four different types of volcanoes: shield, composite, cinder cone, and plug dome. And our Lassen Volcanic yarn is the perfect representation of the grays and greens inherent in the scamper we hope you’ll make through the park.
