   This view of Lake Siskiyou, decorated with a clear blue sky and smooth reflective waters, may quickly set your mind in motion. Imagine sitting on a cabin porch with your feet up, covered by a cool pine forest canopy ... or hiking around the lake on a soft carpet of pine needles. Camping out? Perhaps the smell of coffee brewing, or the unmistakable scent of bacon frying when it wakes you in the morning. These sights, sounds and smells of the great outdoors maybe a few of your most distinct vacation memories.
