Modoc Plateau, California
In far Northern California the Modoc Plateau is a vast (3 million acres) of volcanic tableland that slopes gently to mountain
ranges, among them the nicely named Skedaddle Mountains.
Pronghorn antelope roam here, and in spring and fall migrating waterfowl are drawn to the plateau’s lakes—Honey, Clear, Tule. Lava Bed National Monument sits at the Western edge of the plateau.
Best bases of exploration are Susanville and Alturas, California. More
