Lake County living

Rodman Slough County Park

We just returned home after spending the last few days at Clear Lake, California’s largest freshwater lake. There are so many beautiful hiking trails in the area, most of which I’ve never visited yet; I also enjoy revisiting favorite spots like Anderson Marsh State Historic Park at the south end of the lake and Rodman Slough, at the north end. So I had a lot to look forward to on this trip.

Unfortunately, I had to rearrange my plans when the warm spring-like weather turned much colder — we spent the first couple of days sitting in our accommodation watching the fairly heavy rain turn to snow showers. When the sun finally returned, I had to pack as much as possible into the day and a half before it was time to come home. But even if things didn’t go the way I had hoped, the trip was certainly memorable, especially because I never dreamed I’d be shooting photos like this:

Interior of the main building at Worldmark, Nice

The main building at the Worldmark resort in Nice was built in the mission style and dates from 1904. It was originally a private home and later became part of the Clear Lake Lodge; this was back in the days when the best way to travel around the lake was by boat rather than by road.
