Kings Creek Picnic Area to Cold Boiling Lake = .9 MilesCold Boiling Lake to Bumpass Hell = 2.0 miles with 1353 feet elevation gainBumpass Hell to Bumpass Hell HWY 89 Parking Lot = 2.0 Miles with 500 feet elevation gainTOTAL = 4.9 MilesWe visited Lassen National Volcanic Park and took a hike to Bumpass Hell (the center of the volcano). We took the back way in which is 2.9 miles long with the last 1.5 miles we hiked from 7400 feet up to 8753 feet. This is an elevation gain of 1353 feet. This trail was empty. We were told it was difficult and most people take the shorter more level way in. Even the Park Rangers haven't taken this route. I now know why! But I am so glad we went this way. We were on the edge of the mountain and the scenery was beautiful. It was Me, Jen, Julie, Randy, Jenna, Shea, Alex and Lucas and the kids all did great. Once we got to Bumpass Hell we spent a good hour in amazement. We then hiked out 2 miles on a 500 foot decent. This trail is the main trail to Bumpass Hell both in and out.Deffinately a Bucket List item!

We went rock climbing again. Easton did great! He was a bit intimidated about it at first but then had a blast. He would get to about 5-6 feet up and then repel back down. Wyatt just wanted to destroy the wall and will have that chance soon enough. Morgan did great. I felt a lot better this time. I went up 3-4 times in a row and did not feel exhausted like last time. Afterwards Morgan and I had a rope climbing contest first one to five ascents, won't tell you who won. Jared
