Roll 28: Lassen Volcanic National Park

Hello … remember me?   I have fallen behind a bit in my rolls of film and posting.   Yikes.   That happens quickly, doesn’t it?   Do not fret, I shall return.   The light and air of summer has me in her grasp.   There is still film to be shot and developed so I will catch back up to the hurried pace of a roll a week soon.   Life doesn’t stop just for a camera, does it?

Here’s my latest roll of film, it was a roll of Kodak Ultramax 400 on 35mm.   Again, I shot with my trusty EXA.   I can’t say these were the best shots, though.   I messed it up and didn’t rewind the film properly so I lost more than half the roll.   Totally my error, AGAIN.   That’s what I get for being in a hurry.   DOH!

My family went camping in northern California at Lassen Volcanic National Park and we attended the astronomy festival.   There was much, much, MUCH fun had and I would go back to that park in a heartbeat.   If you ever get the chance, it is well worth the detour from wherever you are going.

This is what I saved/salvaged/am willing to post:

Bumpass Hell is a natural hot spring area with volcanic sulfur pools.   Very beautiful, very dangerous.

This is what you get for letting the ranger take your picture.   It is one of the few from the trip that I am actually in ... sorta.

  1. I have to join the club and say my favorite shot is the junior ranger swearing in ceremony. I agree with you: I much prefer Northern California to Southern. But I suppose I am partisan being born and raised in San Francisco — the perfect training city for moving to New York eons ago.
