Revisit Lassen Peak Eruption! (9/1-9/3 Labor Day Weekend)

posted Jun 27, 2012, 11:02 PM by Vivek Sharma

On Labor Day weekend (9/1 - 9/3) Troop 57 will visit the scene of the most recent volcanic eruption in California, Mt. Lassen, and explore the volcano and its effects on the land. We’ll visit a 1300-foot-long lava tube that carried lava from earlier eruptions; we’ll hike to the top of Lassen Peak and view the results of the most recent eruption; and we’ll visit a boiling lake, bubbling mudpots, and roaring fumaroles (gas vents), that attest to the on-going volcanic activity just below the otherwise calm forest!
