Clear Lake is believed to be one of the oldest lakes in North America. The lake is at least 480,000 years old. Some experts feel that Mono Lake, to the east of the Sierra Nevada in California, is older than Clear Lake. However, the sedimentary history of Clear Lake is unbroken, while Mono Lake's sediments have been disturbed by past eruptions of the Long Valley Caldera and associated volcanoes. The geology of Clear Lake is chaotic, with numerous small faults being present in the south end of the lake as well as many volcanoes, ranging in age from 10,000 to 2.1 million years, the largest being Mount Konocti, sitting at the middle of the lake's south shore. Clear Lake is sometimes described as the largest natural lake wholly within California. I love the way Clear Lake is nestled in the rolling golden hills. Notice the orange tones in the hills against the dark green trees, with orange and yellow green reflections in the blue water.
