Wow, that’s a great shot!! Each year thousands of wonderful pictures are taken in Lassen Volcanic National Park. If you have one of those "great shots" this is your chance for a year of fame. This year’s contest will end on September 5, 2006. "Send us your favorite picture of this magnificent place," Superintendent Martin said. "The photo contest is a great opportunity for park visitors to share their favorite images of the park." The winner’s photo will be featured on the 2006 Lassen Volcanic Annual Park Pass. The winning photographer will also receive a $50 gift certificate, courtesy of the Lassen Loomis Museum Association to spend at one of the park bookstores.

The 29 mile Main Park Road was constructed between 1925 and 1931, just 10 years after Lassen Peak erupted. Near Lassen Peak the road reaches 8512 feet, making it the highest road in the Cascade Mountains. It is not unusual for 40 feet of snow to accumulate on the road near Lake Helen.
