It's three quarters of a mile round Lake Helen, not really worth doing unless you're waiting for someone to finish paddling...
A four mile out and back hike taking in three waterfalls along the McCloud River near Mt Shasta.

Did the same hike again this year - it's worth repeating. Here are some long exposure shots of the three waterfalls.
Third time lucky - Bumpass Hell was open for my third trip to Lassen Volcanic National Park. It's a three mile out and back with great views and of course a whole bunch of geothermal features at the end. The trail winds gently up to Bumpass Hell where there is a steep and surprisingly slippery descent (and an alternate route back up for a very small loop at the end of the trail). Very glad to have finally hiked it.

The screen shot above is from Google Fit. Which icon is active? I can't tell any more. Is it the blue one or the underlined one which is a much stronger cue?
Of course none of the icons are underlined. This is a bottom navigation bar on top of the Android navigation bar on Android 10 with gesture navigation enabled. My brain knows this but my finger still tries to click on Home. Journal just looks so much more active I can't help it. This friction is also in Google Photos and Google Maps and presumably Google everything before too long.
Maybe the Google app developers don't have access to recent Pixels, or maybe the Material Design team all have iPhones?
