Blue Reflection On Siskiyou Lake At Dawn – California, USA

Waking up at 4:30 AM was well worth it to catch the dawn light and seeing the beauty of Siskiyou Lake in California near Shasta Mountain. The place is a resort and hiking trail that offers fishing and swimming. It is worth the trek to get to Northern California near the Oregon border.
