There's usually at least one Bald Eagle watching over Manzanita Lake at Lassen Volcanic National Park at any given time.
Here, let me zoom in a little, so you can see what I'm talking about...
I think this is a perfectly nice place for a majestic bird of prey to perch.
Not only is the air crisp and fresh up here in the mountains, but the view of the lake is incredible.
All of these beautiful views can be seen from the lovely trail that winds around the lake...
Better get a move on! The sun's comin' up quick!
