Terrace Lake, Lassen National Park, California, September 2009
September 26, 2009
A recent road trip took us to several national parks and monuments in northern
California and in Oregon. While in Lassen, we decided to do a short
hike. It's not often that Shon is enticed into hitting the trail,
but every once in a while...
The trail to the lake was short, but steep and downhill, which means
that the hike back would be uphill.
The reward was a good one, Terrace Lake
The Lake is small, but very scenic. The elevation is close to 8000
ft, resulting in open timber.
Walking around the lake produces a different view.
Just below Terrace Lake we find the larger Shadow Lake.

We encountered damp weather in Redwood NP, so the photos are sparse.
(Good excuse for anther trip.) We also visited Lava Beds NM and Crater
