Trout Lake Easter Sunrise
A misty Easter morning sunrise over beautiful Trout Lake in the Shasta Valley Wildlife Area offers gorgeous views of Mount Shasta’s northern face. The first morning we photographed here, we did not realize we were on protected land not open to the public; fortunately, the ranger patrolling this area was very friendly and suggested we pick up a California Department of Fish and Game day or season pass at nearby Raley’s grocery store in Montague to visit some of the public areas, which we returned to the next morning. What a peaceful area with not another soul in sight except hundreds of migrating birds, pheasants, deer, and wild rabbits.
