This is a beautiful crystal clear glacial lake in California's Lassen Volcanic National Park. When the light is right, you can see into its depths. In this photo Lake Helen is in the foreground ... with Lassen Peak in the center, Eagle Peak on the left and the base of Mount Helen on the right in the background. The clear water of Lake Helen gives the illusion that the reflections of the peaks are rising up from the bottom of the lake. The lake is named after Helen Tanner Brodt, who in 1864 was the first woman to reach the summit of Lassen Peak.

This is a beautiful glacial lake located at the head of a valley in the Trinity Mountains in northern California. The valley opens to the north, so it is protected from most wind ... giving it a mirror like appearance in the morning before any kayaks and other small boats arrive. It is such a peaceful spot to enjoy the birds singing and the fresh mountain air, as the sun illuminates the cliffs at the south end of the lake.

Mount Shasta is the prominent landmark visible from Lake Siskiyou, and sometimes on a calm day there's a good reflection in the lake. This doesn't happen often, and it helps to have an ND filter to help smooth any ripples. When the reflection is visible, I'm always taken by its beauty. Of course windy or calm, it's always wonderful to admire the last rays of light striking Mount Shasta. I highly recommend Lake Siskiyou for the gorgeous sunsets.
