    Is that salt and minerals and the walkways are to keep the plebs off the stuff?
    Awesome colours.

    Nice shots! Love Lassen - thank goodness unlike Yosemite it is still relatively under-discovered. A pity they had to overdo the walkways, but I guess that's that park service for ya.

    As a resident of Shasta county, I think we're ok with uncrowded national parks.

    And we have many parks and trails!

    That's how I feel about Victoria (my home before last year) and Vancouver (now). Vancouver has loads of amazing places, but they're crawling with people. It's much easier to get a piece of solitary nature around Victoria.

    I understand the reason for the walkways. But it's still a shame.

    I agree. Its a bit of a shame that we find it necessary to create one blight to protect against another.
