The Adventure Continues… Ahjumawi
If you’re looking to really “get away from it all,” you can’t get much more remote than Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park! When this episode of Golden Parks aired in 2006, the number of visitors was only about 4,000 people per year. You’re more likely to see a bear or other wildlife than another camper. And there are no roads into the park, which can only be accessed by boat. It all seems just a bit too primitive for me, but I’m very glad that such places still exist in our state. Please note that while the park is currently being affected by wildfires in the surrounding areas, it’s still open as I write this, per the California State Parks website.
“Where the waters come together….” is a translation of the word Ahjumawi, which is also the self describing word used by the band of Pit River Native Americans who inhabit the area. Join Huell as he visits this amazing State Park.
