If you want to spend a carefree day with your loved ones amidst a serene lake and greens all around, then plan a day trip to Manzanita Lake in Lassen Volcanic National Park, California. After walking for a few minutes and taking some turns along the lake, you can find out the perfect vantage point to capture the perfect shot of Lassen Peak’s reflection in the blue water of Manzanita Lake.
On our way to Manzanita Lake

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.
~ Hermann Hesse
After reaching Manzanita Lake
After the long drive, when we reached our destination, we let our daughter play as much as she wanted! We sat quietly and kept looking at her. We were refreshed instantly! We learned from her once again, how to be happy with a bit of sunshine, a flowing cascade and some small stones.

Travel Tips: Consider packing an inflatable kayak with you. It can save you a few bucks, instead of renting in each destination you go to!
I named this idiosyncratic tree branch as a crocodile branch!

Beautiful place and stunning photos. I shall read your posts when I plan a visit to California.
I’d never heard of Manzanita Lake before… Or Lassen Volcanic NP if I’m being completely honest. It looks so peaceful, though. If I’m ever in the area, I will definitely check it out.
Really lovely photos. I had never heard of this National Park before. It looks like it would make for a very peaceful and refreshing day.
