It's called Bumpus. Hell, and it's in Lassen Volcanic National Park. Karen Heiner worked at Lassen for 20 years. She made the signs that warn people why it's risky to go off trail. You can actually smell bump in hell before you actually see it. It smells like rotten eggs. It's hydrogen sulphide. Hell has been described as like a little Yellowstone way have boiling mud pots, boiling pools. Hell is named after a gentleman that by the name of Kendall Bumpus, who back in 18 65 Wass. A guide for a group. Kendall was warning everyone to be careful of where they put their feet and step because he knew how how crumbly the ground could be. And unfortunately he took a misstep and his light plunged into the boiling acidic water, and it burned him very severely. That's where it got its name of considered to be his hell because of what he experienced people say, Bum pass or Bump or, you know they can't Quite figure out, but Bumpus is What's his last name was?

And for the last stop on a road trip. We're going ahead from the wilds of nature to the city of San Francisco. Laura Cliven takes us to a church where the music is funky and the skating is holy. Wow, this beautiful lady for 77 Daniel Albert rings this church bell at seven PM every Friday to signal the doors are open in this towering house of worship. Then the music starts. But instead of hearing this, I hear this Well, That's because I'm at the Church of eight wheels. It's a roller disco in the 120 year old former Catholic church. Just blocks away from San Francisco's famous painted Lady row houses. Pews are pushed against the walls and red and green lights reflect off a disco ball and onto the ceiling murals. David Jean Miles junior known as the Godfather of Skate Proselytizes, I am your roller disco minister. I mean, it's the Church of eight wheels. The Godfather. That's my responsibility to spread religion everywhere that I go. You get that roll legend Church of eight Wheels is Miles. His brainchild. He moved to San Francisco in 1979. I started skating only park about 34 day in San Francisco. And I was looking for somewhere to go. When I went out there. I saw four people go by, like they do that here. I could do that when he met his wife there in the park, and later their kids learn to skate just after they learned to walk. Miles, organized skate groups on top of the Embarcadero Freeway after the earthquake of 89 he even skated from San Francisco to L a 14 times. I'm not that ambitious, but I figured I could at least skate for one night. Lace up my skates. And because I want to look something like miles in his fuzzy purple legwarmers, sparkly red and black top hat I put on the next best thing. A cupcake customer. All right, I'm gonna come talk to you guys can't break. I'm afraid, easy to break. Whether you waddle or sail around the rink. There's something incredible about the giant stained glass windows and disco lights. This is what I call the 45 2nd skate lessons because, of course you can't do it. Miles who takes turns deejaying and skating spots. First time rollers flat steppe flat. There you go. One way is all you need. When you come back around here, you'll be going pretty cool. It only gets better for the California report and Laura Ivan's in San Francisco. The indoor rink is closed during shelter in place, but the church of eight wheels is holding outdoor skating events, including a socially distance.

Let's say outside lands like there are so many stages. The reason I'm asking this because Tony brought up the multiple stages. Now, I have a great time at outside lands. And I'm glad it's happening in the city. It's Golden Gate park. But what I found was when you're watching an act on the main stage and then you realize, oh, there's a cool band playing on one of the beasts ages. Let's go over and check it out. Time you get there. It's over. That's it. Or what happened to me? Was I got back there? And I'm like, you know what the, the next band on the main stage. Just starting now we gotta go back. So there's a lot of of running around and not being satisfied. So what's the distance between states? How do you juggle all? That's the beauty of high. Sierra. We're not scattered all over Golden Gate, park. So true plumas county asking. Yeah. Experience. So staged, what are we talking, honestly, just walk walking wise minutes.
