We're leaving San Francisco at 1p tomorrow for 4 nights of backpacking.
My wife and I are planning to head to Lassen Volcanic National Park for the long weekend - looping from summit lake around echo lake, etc. bagging Lassen Peak on our way out after a few days of acclimatizing.
But I'm not sure what to make of this heatwave (record highs in Redding not far away), fire warnings, and potential thunderstorms: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=40.43335959357837&lon=-121.52801513671875.
Anyone have a read on where else in Norcal could be a safe bet this weekend?
We're considering the Lost Coast - making a loop from shelter cove, up into the hills and back since we don't have two cars.
