|Lassen Volcanic National Park: Bumpass Hell Hydrothermal Area|
As this post comes online, hubby, son, puppy dog and I are off camping in the Sierra Nevada mountains. We had reservations at Lassen Volcanic National Park. But when a lightning-ignited fire closed most of the park, we headed up from the summer heat of the California Central Valley, beckoned by the cool mountain air of the Sierras.
Despite the fire, back at Lassen, the mountain lakes are crystal clear. The mud pots are burbling. The volcanic scent of sulfur mixes with smoke to fill the air. The strange and bizarre processes of vulcanology are evidence that our world continues to change.
Lassen Volcanic National Park is a reminder that—whether the earth is millions of years old or merely a few thousand years old—God is still at work on it; still changing its face; still creating beauty; still making things better.
Just as He is doing with us.
THANK YOU, JESUS!
