This is a photo blog. Jack and I got up at 4am and drove to Lassen National Park to summit Lassen Peak on September 9th. It was amazing. Cold, beautiful, an amazing play of light and shadow, color and haze, up close and far away. We made it to the 1/2-mile from the top marker before the sun truly came up in all her big, blazing glory.
After the descent, we went over to Jack's worksite to see the progress he'd made on his rock wall. He took a couple photos of me on top of it - know that the actual wall extends another several feet to the left of the photo, and the rocks were placed, chiseled, cut, on all three tiers.
Don't forget, if you click on the photos they should show up bigger on your screen. Enjoy!
