Backroads America: Chena Lakes

A Day at the Lake

Chena Lake is a man-made lake created in the 1970s when gravel was removed for the massive Chena River flood control dam/dike. The earthen filled dam is 7.1 miles long.

Chena Lake Recreation Area is a 2000 acre park with picnicking, camping boating, and swimming. My sister and her family love to kayak. I love to watch. 😎😎😎

Welcome to my Forest

Off the Beaten Path: Carbon Canyon Regional Park, County of Orange, California

The Life Cycle of a Coastal Redwood in Arid Southern California.

The Carbon Canyon Redwood Grove was planted in 1975 with seedlings donated by a bank. Today, 241 redwoods have survived the arid climate, though they will never reach the size of the redwoods living in the northern coastal climate. Earlier in the 20th century, the Carbon Canyon area was part of a booming oil production industry.

A giant tree that produces a very small seed cone. The soil here will not support growth from seeds.
