The Grasshopper goes to HELL!!!!


"Bumpass Hell", that is.
(A popular trail at Lassen Volcanic National Park)
And it was a good day in Hell, too. There was a huge hatch of California Tortoise Shell Butterflies the week of our visit, and the air was full of them. Alas, they were too small to capture with the low-end video equipment at our disposal. Take it from me, though, it was a sight to behold; hundreds of thousands of butterflies filling the air, sweeping across roads and trails in the high country of Northern California on a picture-perfect day. Pretty friggin' amazing.

View from Wizard Island

I prefer this to the previously posted image,
"LBNM: Stretch view of Mushpot Cave".

However, the pano conversion of this image isn't all that hot,
and it doesn't upload to this application too well either.

Further editing may be called for, but I have other things to do at the moment.
