On Saturday, 22nd May, we found out that the road that enters
Lassen Volcanic National Park from the south (Red Bluff)
was open for driving all the way up to the Lake Helen parking
lot at least.
We found this out only after done the cross country walk from the
Sulphur Works of course :-).
The snow was firm enough that snowshoes were not needed on
the entire trip. On that day, we did not need crampons either,
though the axe helped. A few parts of the trail on the mountain are
visible and the snow appears to be melting quickly.
