Painted Dunes • Lassen Volcanic National Park, California

Part of the Lassen Volcanic National Park in California, the Painted Dunes, were created hundreds of years ago when a nearby cinder cone volcano erupted. Since then, trees have sporadically taken root while the igneous rocks created a spectacular array of natural colors. The Painted Dunes is one of most popular destinations to visit in the park.
