Spelunking without a Light

Unfortunately, the trip only allowed for a short visit to Lassen National Park, as we drove north through California. We came in through Reno and took the route through Lassen Park, for a quick experience, on our way past Shasta and into Oregon. During the quick visit to Lassen Volcanic National Park, we had the luck┬áto explore the lava tube caves, but we were so excited to be there that we just ran in…quickly realizing some sort of lighting would have probably been a good idea! Doh! Well, we followed some light-bearing individuals around until we lost them and then had to find our way out of the cave in the dark. Luckily, I was smart enough to wear flip flops and a cave floor is a wonderfully bumpy surface to walk on.
