|One Way Trail (Steps) - Lassen National Park 2018|
|Fritos and Beer - Lassen National Park 2018|
Hiking back to the trailhead one can either retrace one's steps, or take a one-way, strenuous, vertical stone staircase that parallels the creek. Mike took the staircase, a little bit at a time, stopping frequently for photos (good excuse for rest stops). Some fellow hikers finally appeared.
Up at the top he found a nice spot by the creek for his lunch.
