I know this second half has been a long time coming. Apologies. See the first part of our Lassen adventure here: https://laurelwalks.com/2014/07/21/mount-lassen-pt-1/#more-201
The Adventuring Commences
So here I am, sitting next to Summit Lake with ants crawling over my awesome flip-flop-and-sock combo, reveling in being so very alive right this second. Which is pretty damn amazing, all by itself.
But the camp is stirring and I head back to commence the packing up and heading out routine. We breakfast and break camp, packing and repacking packs.
We set out on the trail from the Summit Lake ranger station. It immediately winds on a plank walkway through an immposibly green meadow, then gently up.
