The Sapphire Lake In Northern California That’s Devastatingly Gorgeous

High in the remote Lassen Volcanic National Park is the bluest lake you will ever see. It’s fed by snow run off and is located in one of the most pristine national parks out west. Lake Helen’s sparkling blue waters are definitely a must see for any Northern California, especially those of us who like to get outside and see beautiful places.
