Injured on ski descent  Sucess!

The company I worked for in Reno went out of business, so my boss and I went skiing with another co-worker. The bowl had some of the largest suncups I have ever skied. My ski got caught on the edge of a cup and twisted my knee. After removing my other ski I traversed over to the trail, where there was lady, who just happened to be a nurse. She helped me walk down the trail to the parking area, where I met my partners who carried my pack and skis down on their ski descent.

Fun peak my first Valcano  Sucess!

First Time Over 10,000!  Sucess!

After climibing to the top of Cinder Cone and nearly passing out from exhaustion in June of 2007 I thought I was surely going to perish on the much higher Lassen Peak Trail. My climbing partner (Nephew David) assured me that this trail was easier than Cinder Cone and that I would be just fine. As usual he was right, although I did take is easy just to make sure. When the 87 year old granny passed me I threw caution to the wind and zoomed up to the top!

Tourist Trail  Sucess!

Took the tourist trail. I did it later in the day so there were only a few people on the trail. I wonder how many people don't go to the actual high point of this mountain?

1st of two  Sucess!

With gas prices plunging to 3.40 a gallon here in Bend, I had to make the long drive to norcal to see what the area's all about. The mountain was a little cold and bleak; and there was a dense layer of haze from controlled burns that really limited the view. Neat summit area, if nothing else seeing the park made the trip worthwhile, and nearby brokeoff mountain is a great hike to combine with this one.

Had the summit to myself  Sucess!

Was at the summit at 8am before the hordes made their way up. Great views of Shasta to the north. Fun hike.

Nice views!  Sucess!

We did Lassen a few years ago and the views from the summit were great. The hike itself is not so nice; boring, a lot of people. It's an easy and fast hike.

Easy Bag  Sucess!

Super easy hike, followed up with a hike and overnight stay at Ridge Lakes. I was kind of disappointed to see how crowded it was, must have seen almost a hundred people. Would be a cool mountain to come back and do in the winter.

Busy Day  Sucess!

Lots of people coming down the trail. Not too many going up by the time we left (1:45 @ trailhead?). Half of our party bailed and made us late. Not too crowded at the top. Lots of haze and smoke from fires, but Shasta popped out for a few minutes! Should have yelled at ppl cutting switchbacks and feeding chipmunks but was too busy huff'n'puffin'

Almost a Ranger  Sucess!

Climbed it several times, quickest was 52 minutes on the trail, longest was skiing in and slogging up the south face. Was to be a backcountry ranger after winter in Death Valley but got frost bite on 5 toes on Denali that precluded me from wearing any type of footwear for patroling the trails.

standard route  Sucess!

Hiked Lassen one day after success on Shasta in moderate snow. Visibility was poor, so I was disapointed to miss out on the views. Be sure to visit the true summit! It's a nice little scramble.

Lassen four times  Sucess!

I climbed the south side twice in very windy conditions (up to 70 mph) Once with my dad at age 6, and once at age 7 with my direct family and my aunt and her friend.

On my third time, I climbed in may 07 in the snow. Fourth time, moonlight in august 07.

Redemption  Sucess!

Failed to summit one month prior. Great day on the mountain summiting before 10 am and glissading back to the parking lot before noon. Why don't the NPS have the road open til the parking lot I do not know?

Snowboard Descent  Sucess!

An epic ride!!!! After a 2 hrs hike up the road, which had way cool 20 ft snow walls, and trail we were on top. Then an awesome descent that was super sunny and slushy spring goodness. It did kinda suck hiking out, but otherwise well worth it.
