I really enjoyed the detour from 5 in OR that gmaps took me on to avoid the construction a couple years ago. I think it was the volcanic historical route. Driving by Odell lake was awesome as I played the game at school
And it was super pretty and crazy to see a lake that full, since I am used to California. When I went, the water line was all the way to the tree line.
My parents have a house at Lake Almanor, so that is old hat for me. 172 off of 36 outside of Lake Almanor is an all time road, and joins back to 36.
