Welcome to the Tule Lake Basin
This pan, north to south, looks east from the top of Sheepy Ridge. At the start one is looking north along Sheepy Ridge towards Merrill, Oregon. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Headquarters is seen below. The pan takes in Malin, Oregon, and Tulelake, California. Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge and Tule Lake are seen along with Horse Mountain and The Peninsula (aka Castle Rock). Newell, California is across the basin to the east. It was the site of the Tule Lake Internment – Segregration Center. The pan ends looking south along Sheepy Ridge towards the Lava Beds National Monument and Medicine Lake Highlands. This pan includes portions of Klamath County, Oregon along with Modoc and Siskiyou County, Czlifornia.
Anders Tomlinson spent years filming farmland and wildlife refuges surrounding Tulelake, California. He started the Tule-Lake.com website in late 2004. In 2008 Anders designed eight square panels, each 48 inches tall, for a community rest-stop at the intersection of Highway 139 and Tulelake’s Main Street. These panels clearly showcase places and things one can enjoy if they leave the highway and explore the surrounding landscape. They are a wonderful graphical overview of things that make Tulelake, California what it is, truly a crossroads in history.
