Lassen Volcanic National Park Makes Frommer's Top Destinations for 2009

Take a few days to see waterfalls and wildflowers in Northern California. A fabulous drive this time of year is along Hwy. 70 from Oroville to Quincy. The Feather River National Scenic Byway that meanders through the Feather River Canyon is going to have a brilliant wildflower bloom. Right now the redbud and buttercups are starting the season, which will continue through May.

Just north of Quincy, Hwy. 89 heads up to Lassen Volcanic National Park. Frommer's Travel Guide listed this park as a top destination for 2009! While you're there, spend some time hiking around. The views are fabulous. Don't miss Bumpass Hell, where boiling mud pots are a constant reminder that you're standing on a volcano!
