Lassen Volcanic National Park 2014

Lassen Volcanic National Park - dominated by Lassen Peak, is the largest plug dome volcano in the world and the southern-most volcano in the Cascade Range.

The source of heat for volcanism in the Lassen area is subduction off the Northern California coast of the Gorda Plate diving below the North American Plate. The area surrounding Lassen Peak is still active with boiling mud pots, stinking fumaroles, and churning hot springs.Lassen Volcanic National Park is one of the few areas in the world where all four types of volcano can be found (plug dome, shield, cinder cone, and strato).
