Canyon Creek Hike, Trinity Alps1676 viewsOne guidebook (Bernstein, 1993) claims that Canyon Creek makes Yosemite look like a back alley. Both guidebook and internet authors conclude that the Canyon Creek trail is a common favorite choice if you have only one Trinity Alps trip.

Point Sur Beach1163 viewsHistorically, the name Big Sur was derived from that unexplained and unmapped wilderness area which lays along the coast south of Monterey. It was simply called El Sur Grande; The Big South. Today, Big Sur refers to that 90-mile stretch of rugged and awesomely beautiful coastline between Carmel to the north and San Simeon (Hearst Castle) to the south. Highway One winds along its length and is flanked on one side by the majestic Santa Lucia Mountains and on other by the rocky Pacific Coast.

Manzanita Lake, Lassen National Park6240 viewsManzanita Lake sits under the majestic shadow of Mt. Lassen in Lassen Volcanic National Park. This lake provides the visitor with easy access to prime stillwater fishing just inside the park entrance. Although not numerous, the lake has trophy size rainbow, brown and a few brook trout. The lake can be fished from shore, but is better fished from a small pram or kickboat or float tube. The lake is rich with insect life producing abundant hatches.

Arroyo Seco1394 viewsWith the heavy spring rains the Arroyo Seco bursts into bloom. The eroded rock formations surrounding the valley are very unusual and remind one of giant sculptures. The sparsely visited Arroyo Seco River valley is located on the inland side of the California coastal range just below Big Sur and directly behind 5000-foot-high Cone Peak. Mission San Antonio is a short distance away and was part of the California mission system working its way north to the port of Monterey. The best time to visit the Arroyo Seco is in the spring when temperatures are cool. Opening day of trout season on the Arroyo Seco River is usually around the first of May and was the original reason for this first visit.
