In the Shadow of Mt Lassen

IN THE SHADOW OF MT LASSEN | LASSEN VOLCANIC NATIONAL PARK

(View looking southeast towards Lake Almanor with Reading Peak in the foreground. Atop Mt Lassen volcano) — at Lassen Volcanic National Park.

I had put all my gear away to partially descend Mt Lassen when I happened to turn around. It took me a moment to realize that I was looking at the shadow of the mountain stretching to the horizon. I was awestruck by the scene. Needless to say, the gear was quickly taken from the bag to capture the moment over Lassen Volcanic National Park.

I had spent all my time looking into the sun that I had forgotten to turn around. Isn’t that so true for most of us? Not staring into the direction of the sun, but focused on something that we forget to take a moment to consider all the different perspectives around our position.

Here are a couple of the photos from atop Mt. Lassen looking to the west.

When is the last time you had a moment that reminded you to look around?
