Lassen Volcanic National Park

4.3
In Lassen Volcanic National Park, steaming volcanic mountains give way to alpine meadows filled with wildflowers and pristine mountain lakes. The park is home to Mt. Lassen, which reaches an altitude of 3,187 m (10,457 ft) and stands as the world's largest lava-dome volcano. The volcanic landscape remains active today, with boiling mud pots, smoky fumaroles, and hot springs scattered throughout the park. Fifty-seven species of mammals, from the tiny shrew to the American black bear, call the park home, and 216 species of birds, including eagles, falcons, and warblers either migrate through or breed here. The mountainous terrain and various water features make the park ideal for hiking, backpacking, angling, paddling, and snowshoeing. The 46.7 km (29 mi) main park road lets drivers conveniently sightsee from the comfort of their vehicles. Lassen Volcanic National Park is in California (CA).
