John and Sammie's California, Oregon Trip Page One

These are pictures we took on a trip to Tule Lake,California. Michael and Josh our Great Grand Kids went with us to the Lavabeds National Park Northern California This is a great Place to visit if your in that area. The Caves are deep and some require almost a mile hike in to see them but it is well worth it. The Ice floor cave is great too but it is steep going down to the frozen ice lot of steep stair wells the rails are ice cold. Some caves were closed due to the Bats nesting season. We also went to the Redding Sundial Bridge beautiful Bridge across the Sacramento River Pedestrian traffic only also a very nice Museum.

Tule Lake California

Leaving for the Lava Beds

We started out early and it still wasn't enough time to explore all the caves would have been better if we had taken 2 days. We drove around the lake to get to the Lavebeds.

Petroglyphs all over this lone mountain so much stuff that they can't tell what is real or what is fake.

Captain Jacks Strong Hold

To Tired to walk it.

Sammie and the Great Grand Kids did though ..this is where Capt Jack held off the Calvery for days with just a few men if they had had more supplies I don't think the calvery could not have gotten the Indians, I'ts a great story. Escape Route..How could 160 Modoc men ,women and children,along with their dogs and horses, withdraw from the Stronghold overnight without alerting the troops bivouaked on either side? This question has puzzled both Army leaders and historians, Many have assumed that the Modocs "sneaked up" some "lava trench" or "gully" probably with the connivance and "help" of the Warm Springs scouts." Areal photographs and modern maps of the terrian, however, make it quite clear that the Modocs simply walked southward from their living quarters, keeping on the flat and easily traversed surface of the lava plateau. Thus they avoided the rough and deep trenches. By dawn they could eaisly have reached a new supply of water in the Ice caves, now called Captain Jack's Ice Cave and Frozen River Cave, which lies about 5 to 6 miles south. 60 men held off a Army of 20 times that size.
