Mt. Lassen Reflected in Lake Helen
Trail Thoughts and Musings
Mt. Lassen, the dominating feature in the park, now becomes visible from this vantage point as it reflects in the waters of Lake Helen. The lake was named after the first woman to have climbed to the summit of Mt. Lassen. It creates an enigma, in that it's 110 foot deep basin was carved by a south flowing glacier, yet Mt. Lassen's slopes are unglaciated. The lake must predate the volcano.
