Winter Reflection
Beautiful forested back roads can be found all over El Dorado National Forest. Some lead to great fishing spots, along creeks or rivers, swimming holes or impressive waterfalls. Plenty primitive camp sites to choose from. Somerset California is a rural neighborhood that lies on the edge of the National Forest boundary.
