Lassen Volcanic National Park is in northeast California and is full of geologic action, featuring four kinds of volcanoes, hot springs, boiling mud pots, and even fumaroles actively spitting out steam and gases. The mountain and park are named for a Danish blacksmith that settled the area in the early 1800s. The park provides plenty of attractions other than the volcanic, with lots of hiking, camping, and fishing and is very popular.

Finding all the locations for those activities is enhanced by this interactive topographic scale model which features lighting enhancements for almost everything the park offers. The orange lights point out some of the peaks, and the white draw the outline of the ancient Brokeoff Volcano which was an unbelievable 11 by 15 miles. Campgrounds and hiking and picnicking areas are all clearly marked in this beautiful hand-painted model.
