Join Tracy Salcedo, author of Hiking Lassen Volcanic
National Park, this summer for a walk-and-talk hike around Manzanita Lake.
This easy trail winds
gently around Manzanita Lake and is an ideal choice for families or
others unable to hike on difficult terrain. Well shaded by looming Jeffrey
pines and bordered by lush willows, this trail offers a welcomed respite from
the heat of the day. As the trail wanders along the shoreline numerous openings
offer hikers an opportunity to spot ducks, geese and the occasional muskrat and
beaver. The surrounding forest also offers birdwatchers and wildlife
enthusiasts opportunities to catch glimpses of woodpeckers and deer.
Salcedo will share her insights into best hikes
and best hiking practices in the park. The hike is limited to 20 participants.
Cost is $10 and you can sign up online at lassenassociation.org or call 530.595.4464. Kids under 10 are free.
* Please note that pets are not permitted on trail
Nature Photography Workshop with Terry Nathan
Terry Nathan Photography Workshop: park road photo tour
In this two-day photography workshop, we will use Lassen Volcanic National Park’s stunning landscape and diversity of ecosystems to improve our skills making photographs. By combining in-class and hands-on photography experiences in the park, we will learn about compositional principles that will enable us to make more compelling photographs of wildflowers, geologic features, and grand mountain views. The workshop will consist of a two-hour in class presentation on the principles of lighting and composition, a five-hour hands-on field excursion, and a post photo-shoot critique session.
What to Bring
All types of cameras are welcome. Bring plenty of water, backpack, lunch, extra food, sunscreen, insect repellent, hat, sunglasses, rain gear for you and gear. Wear sturdy hiking shoes/boots, layers of light and loose clothing. Small folding chair is optional.
