At the visitor center we watched a 20 min long movie about Mount Lassen, and its volcanic activity. Mount Lassen have roaring fumaroles (steam vents,) that tells us that this mountain is indeed an active volcano. We were told to stay on dedicated walking paths, and the main road only, to avoid getting burned from these. It was more than 100 years since Mount Lassen’s last eruption, but the mountain is still very much alive. The volcanic gas coming out from the fumaroles have a strong scent (almost like sewer,) its difficult to breath when close to them.
The road was closed to vehicles, just above the visitor center. However, it was allowed to view the rest of the park by foot. We took advantage of that.
We hiked a couple miles up the road, and enjoyed the snow-covered landscape. It was marvelous!
