A quick trip to northern California to see some very big and old trees. The Redwood National Park is a very nice place to visit. Some of the coastal towns and campgrounds are showing their age but the forests are wonderful.
Lassen Volcanic National Park is a hidden gem. Located in northern California but off the main roads, it surprised us with beauty. Snow capped peaks and beautiful mountain lakes. We really enjoyed a very well kept campground with lots of nice hiking trails. We did not wander over to the side of the park that has volcanic features like steam vents and mud pots similar to Yellowstone.
