The Oldest Lake In America Is Right Here In Northern California And It’s Amazing

Other parts of the country have the oldest bookstore, the oldest airport, the oldest who knows what, but here in Northern California, we have the oldest lake in North America. Pretty cool, right? I bet you didn’t know Clear Lake is 2.5-million years old! And that’s not the only interesting thing about it.
