Up in the mountains, and with the beautiful waters of Clear Lake on the doorstep, you'll be free to hike, camp, or bike in famous national reserves, or to settle down for some bass fishing on the banks _ it's said to be one of the best spots for that in America. Summertime also means oodles of watersports, so get ready to purr over the lakes on jet skis, go kayaking in country creeks, or rent private pontoons for water-top picnics under the sun.
