Creator/Contributor:

Abstract:

Tallac -- 10: [Lake Tahoe, Cascade Lake, and White Cloud Falls] -- 11: The California Geysers -- 12: The Klammath Hot Springs and surroundings -- 13: On the "Big Bend" of the Shasta Route -- 14: [Mount Shasta, Sissons, and vicinity] -- 15: On the road to Crater Lake [including Rogue River, Oregon and region] -- 16: Crater Lake, on the summit of the Cascade Mts.
