Having been born and raised in Redding, I, like so many others of like heritage, have traveled through the Lassen Park area dozens of times. It’s something I never get tired of, or take for granted.
Recently, I took a motorcycle ride through Lassen with some friends. Since this was my first time through the park on a motorcycle, I thought it might be fun to attach a GoPro camera to my helmet and document the ride.
Now, even though you may have taken this road a time or two, I invite you to journey through Lassen from a different perspective many don’t get to experience: on a motorcycle.
So set up a fan to feel the wind in your hair, and let’s go!
