Day 2 - McCarther to Lassen NP

Lava Tube

Part of the fun of a bike tour is stopping along the way to see some of the sights. The area surrounding Mt Lassen and the National Park has a number of Volcanic features. One State park had a short hike that went through a lava tube left over from an ancient erruption. We had arranged to have small flashlights to go through the tube which was pitch black. The nice thing was that it was much cooler than it was above ground.
