Here's the second installment of the four-part series.
We arrived in Lassen near sundown and while we got the last site available to camp in, it was a bad site with extremely noisy neighbors that decided to let their children play bocce ball at 7 in the morning the next day.
Before we headed to bed we decided to get the quintessential shot of Mt. Lassen. This was at a small pond near the entrance. After experimenting with different settings, I finally got this photo of Mt. Lassen reflected in the nearly still water. If you look carefully, you can see submerged driftwood in the water near the bottom of the frame.
The next day we went out and explored the park some more and decided not to stay an additional day. In a small wet meadow near a lake we found a large number of Crimson-ringed Whiteface dragonflies, Leucorrhinia glacialis. There were also a number of Chrysobothris buprestids flying around the slash piles, saved from collecting by dint of being in a National Park.
As we continued to climb, we reach the summit of the road through the park at 9000' at the base of Mt. Lassen. Near this place I shot the next photo. Snow was still everywhere in big drifts and the lake was iced around the edges.
As we didn't spend that much time here, I don't have any more good shots to share.
