A Beautiful View of Lassen Peak

A Beautiful View of Lassen Peak

On our hike back from Eagle Peak I saw Mount Lassen with a beautiful reflection of the mountain and a field of purple flowers along side of it. Taken September 6, 2011 on my 4 day trip to Mount Lassen National Park.

Great shot!

Been many years since I've been to Lassen. Used to hike there when I attended Chico State and boy do I miss it. Thanks for the memories Josh. CJ

Great shot!

Thanks CJ! It was indeed a fun road trip with a few other mountains we visited along the way.

That is...

... a beautiful photo Josh. I am always a fan of wildlfowers in the foreground.

Cheers. Guido

Re: That is...

Thanks SoCalHiker! It was a nice view to see the mountain in front of the flowers with such a lovely reflection. And the best part was that a little earlier the water was a little choppy, and a hour later when coming back it was once again slightly wavy. So I got to this spot just at the right moment.

Re: wow...

Thanks Liba! I wish I saw more scenery like this back at home. At least I get to enjoy nice glacier covered mountains where I live. :-D

Re: Congrats, Josh...

Thanks Eric! Although in many of my photographs it takes an expedition to get a moment like this, here I got quite lucky and only had to do a few hours worth of hiking to get this. Cheers Josh Lewis

Re: I agree with the others.

Thanks Noondueler! It is people like you that help inspire me to take pictures like this. Although photo or not, it is always a pleasant place to in conditions like this.

Re: I agree with the others.

Thanks Josh! This one also helped inspire me to likely take a trip to the general area for a 3 day this weekend. Castle Crags, Mt. Eddy then something in Lassen. Due to circumstances I've gotten to the Cali high country very little this season so I'm looking forward to gettin out there. Happy resta the summer!

Thank you for sharing. I also like the purple flowers growing in the foreground. Great photograph. I hope to pass that way someday.
