California is mainly known for it´s mega cities Los Angeles and San Francisco. But there is more to detect.
Lassen National Park is mostly unknown. Simply, because other NP´s like Yosemite in California or Yellowstone in Wyoming have a more spectacular scenery than Lassen has. What a pitty. Lassen is a geothermal park with steaming fumerols, clear lakes, creeks and several volcanos. The biggest of all is Mt. Lassen.
Yosemite National Park is one of the oldest N.P.´s in the US. President Roosevelt signed the bill in 1906 that set the park under federal control. Yosemite is best known for its breathtaking landscape, great cliffs and awesome waterfalls. The photographer Ansel Adams became famous for his iconic b&w pictures of the park.
