The next day, we headed to Lassen Volcanic National Park and were even more pleased to find about 3 to 4 feet of snow on the ground! We went snowshoeing, skiing, snowshoeing again and finally skiing again! What a day! I took Jasper on my back for the second skiing run. At first, he seemed to just take it all in with a straight face until I started to pick up speed on a long, slow but steady, downhill run. Then, Jasper started laughing! He seemed to love the speed and the breeze as we glided downhill. The entire day, we only saw four other vehicles! We had the place to ourselves!
We spent a second night at the lodge in Chester. Once again, we headed out under the stars for a bit of snowshoeing.
