Hiking in Lassen; Chaos Crags

Home / Art / Series and Works / Hiking in Lassen; Chaos Crags

Last week I hiked part of the Chaos Crags trail in Lassen, the trail follows Manzanita Creek at the start and then winds through the forest. At the end of the trail you have a good view of Chaos Crags, and possible a seasonal lake.

My hiking partner wimped out about halfway down the trail after a really long day so we just turned around. Here are some of the photographs leading up to that point, and a Panorama Sphere of the turn around point.

We parked next to the Loomis Museum and started from there and while messing around I made a quick panorama of the museum. The museum was built by Benjamin Loomis in 1927 to serve as a gateway to the park, as well as house his photographs of the eruption and Estella’s paintings. It was dedicated to his daughter and originally titled and dedicated as the Mae Loomis Memorial Museum. Mae Loomis had passed away in 1920 from an unknown illness. The impact that the Loomis family had on the Shingletown area is hard to measure, and the museum is but a small part of that contribution.
