Visiting a rarely-appreciated gem on the east side of Siskiyou:
Orr Lake, a high desert oasis tucked in a the base of Orr Mountain between
Goosenest and Mt. Hoffman and with a view to Mt. Shasta to the south.
Fed by overflow from nearby Butte Creek, Orr Lake survives year-to-year on its winter income and yet provides a home for lily pads and fish all summer.
