The Bountiful Lakes of Trinity Alps
Mount Shasta sets a lovely backdrop from the camp spot at Heart Lake up in the Trinity Alps. The magic of this place is just beyond words, the sunsets are a finale and the sunrises a symphony. About 6 hours north of San Francisco
, it's a lovely hike up to several series of lakes with a plethora of great spots for wilderness camping up above the crowds that camp around Castle Lake.
