Spending the past week up in the mountains of Lassen County got me remembering some long-ago camping trips to similar spots a bit further south, near Frenchman Reservoir in Plumas County, back in the 1980s. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find any photos from those trips, so instead I went digging into my photo album and found these prints, from […]
Back in May 2010 we spent a quiet week with my in-laws at Clear Lake, fishing and relaxing at a relatively small motel on Soda Bay known then as the Ferndale Resort.

I was disappointed to find the cabin had no phone and no TV; but it did have a wide balcony, a wonderful picture window looking out over […]
