In August of 2015, Chris Tschirhart assumed responsibilities as project manager for the Upper Brushy Creek Water Control and Improvement District, located in Williamson County, Texas. When not busy with his duties there, Chris Tschirhart loves to hike and over the years has trekked through several National Parks, including Lassen Volcanic National Park in northeastern California.

Among the country’s oldest national parks, Lassen Volcanic National Park celebrated its 100-year anniversary in August of 2016. The park, which features mud pots, boiling pools, and volcanic-gas vents, offers visitors an opportunity to explore its unique geology during the winter and early spring.

Every Saturday and Sunday from January 7, 2017, through April 2, 2017, visitors can accompany a park ranger for a 1.5- to 2-hour excursion. Route and distance vary depending on the weather conditions and the size of the group, which is limited to the first 40 people to secure a ticket inside the park’s visitor center. Visitors are encouraged to wear boots, dress warm, and bring a bottle of water. The park provides snowshoes, although $1 donations are encouraged.
