“To the people who love you, you are beautiful already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings but because they so clearly see your soul. Your shortcomings then dim by comparison. The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and beautiful, too.” – Victorian Moran

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.”  – John O’Donahue

“To sell your soul is the easiest thing in the world. That’s what everybody does every hour of his life. If I asked you to keep your soul – would you understand why that’s much harder?” – Ayn Rand

Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway

Between Lake Almanor’s southern reign in California and the northern tip of Oregon’s Crater Lake, lies a region steeped in a rich history of fire and ice. Where geology and history have collided from the depth of a disrupted and eruptive past, amazing landscapes remain. On a 500 mile, two-state journey–encompassing National Parks, State Parks, and Wildlife Refuges–the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway (The Byway) provides a lens into these landscapes and an opportunity to learn how history shaped them and the communities which surround them.

“How it is that animals understand things I do not know, but it is certain that they do understand. Perhaps there is a language which is not made of words and everything in the world understands it. Perhaps there is a soul hidden in everything and it can always speak, without even making a sound, to another soul.”  – Frances Hodgson Burnett
