The Winter Solstice is almost upon us and the scenic drive through Lassen Volcanic National Park is now officially closed for the season. “The highway is covered by a blanket of snow and the park has been transformed into a scenic winter wonderland,” announced Park Superintendent Darlene M. Koontz.
