At most state and national parks, dogs are confined to paved paths, fire roads and picnic areas. If those rules don’t fit your free-roaming style, take heart: There are plenty of other places to camp and hike with your best four-legged friend. Here are two campground-rich areas in Northern California that get the DogTrekker paw of approval. more »

One of the most prolific wildflower shows in California blooms in early July at Carson Pass on Highway 88, about a half-hour south of Lake Tahoe. We’re talking head-high stands of violet lupin, bright red paintbrush and Queen Anne’s lace, flanked by blankets of purple penstemon, golden mule ears, orange columbine and mountain daisies. Go midweek and go early to snag a parking spot at the Carson Pass Information Station, gateway to this floral wonderland. more »
