Only in Your State offers several popular and incredibly beautiful places on the embankments where you can enjoy the views and have a good time.

Once known as Clare Angle Lake, the lake got its current name after the County built the Trinity Dam. It is the third largest water reservoir in California. Its canals cut through the Trinity Forest.

Locals believe that there is nothing more beautiful than an evening in the bay, when the sun sets at the water's edge. However, sunrise or sunset does not matter. Any shot will be great. This sunset was filmed near the town of Sausalito:
7. Mormon Creek
Judge Tuttle discovered gold on the banks of the Mormon River in the mid-1800s. He built a log cabin near the beach and the town became known as Tuttletown. The stream runs through parts of Tuolomne County, including Jamestown and Sonora.
8. Lake Jabu
Lake Jabu also has a second name - Lake Lucille. Few know about it, because the lake is located in the wilderness - in the place that is called the "desert" in the National Forest of El Dorado. You can go hiking to see this place.
9. Salmon River
The river is about 20 miles long (over 30 km) and originates in the Trinity Alps mountains. It has two branches that run through the Klamath National Forest. There are no dams along the way of the water to obstruct the flow.
10. Emerald Bay
Next time you find yourself in the Lake Tahoe area, stop by this little local gem. Some people think this is a piece of heaven on earth. This place is more photographed than other bodies of water in Northern California. And you can see why.
11. River Smith
The Smith River flows through three forests and is in the northernmost part of the state, and the city is named after her. Smith River is the wettest city in the entire state. It receives an average of 70 inches (177 cm) of rain per year, compared to 35 inches (89 cm) for the rest of the state.
12. Sempervirens Falls
You can find this beauty at Big Basin Redwoods. A trip to the park will certainly require a visit to this wonderful waterfall. The waterfall got an interesting name from the term Sequoia Sempervirens, the Latin name for sequoia.
