Manzanita Lake in Lassen Volcanic National Park, California – A photo essay!

If you want to spend a carefree day with your loved ones amidst a serene lake and greens all around, then plan a day trip to Manzanita Lake in Lassen Volcanic National Park, California. After walking for a few minutes and taking some turns along the lake, you can find out the perfect vantage point to capture the perfect shot of Lassen Peak’s reflection in the blue water of Manzanita Lake.

On our way to Manzanita Lake

On my way to Manzanita Lake, I met trees; tall, green trees. I stopped my car thrice on the road and listened to them. They speak a lot; you just have to listen!

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.

~ Hermann Hesse

After reaching Manzanita Lake

After the long drive, when we reached our destination, we let our daughter play as much as she wanted! We sat quietly and kept looking at her. We were refreshed instantly! We learned from her once again, how to be happy with a bit of sunshine, a flowing cascade and some small stones.

  4. Really lovely photos. I had never heard of this National Park before. It looks like it would make for a very peaceful and refreshing day.
