August 9th - Wildfire!

Fire trucks behind us
Fire trucks racing along to the wildfire zooming past us.

Wildfires and chocolate. That was today. In the morning, we packed up from camping overnight on the outskirts of Lassen Park, and began our descent (from 4800 feet to 140). Along the way, we passed a small wildfire (with lots and lots of trucks around) and Pumpkinland chocolate, which had delicious chocolates and ice cream (and some free samples!)
