Northern California Road Trip aka No Big Cities

We flew into the Reno-Truckee Airport and rented a car for a week in Northern California and Coastal Southern Oregon. The Reno Airport is a great airport. The Car Rental is a walk away, very easy.
We drove to Susanville for our first evening. Up bright and early the next morning we drove to Lassen.
The view of the mountain coming in was breath-taking. We were practically the only day-trippers there and had the place pretty much to ourselves.

Lovely Lassen

I love the tall pines in Northern California. Here I am at another National Park Entrance sign - a happy day-tripper.

    You did a great job on this site. It makes me want to go visit it again. I love areas like this--no cities, no people, just nature.
