Trail Thoughts and Musings

What appears to be the summit now comes into sight. Unfortunately, this is only a false summit and the ascent will continue. These stark and lonely trees stand as a testament to the harsh climate that is found here. They bear the wounds inflicted both by frequent lighting storms and the heavy snow loads that must be endured during the severe Mt. Lassen winters.
