In the previous post I moaned about forests and mentioned two routes I might take to Oregon—less forested and more forested. I invited people to guess which route I's take.
Well, as I arrived in Susanville CA and was presented with the junction of 395 (less forested route) and 36 (more forested), I made the last-second choice of 36. And then 44, toward Lassen Volcanic National Park. Surprise, I actually enjoyed it.
