Mesa in the spring – Ramhorn Springs

This is volcanic country. Old lava beds with canyons cut into them and bend and twisted rocks. Ramhorn Springs campground is one of those ‘wide spot in a canyon’ campgrounds with hardly any level spot in it. The springs have been capped and a pipe just dumps the flow into the canyon stream. The water might be potable as it is straight from the ground but that isn’t enough for today’s water safety standards.

The campground is just off US 395 between Alturas and Susanville. The elevation is about 5500′.
