Lake County is bordered by Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino Colusa and Yolo Counties. The county is known for its natural resources, clean air, and increasingly as a wine growing region. The county has a population of 65,000 spread through several small towns around Clear Lake and on Highways 29 and 20. Clear Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake wholly within the state with 68 square miles of surface area and 100 miles of shoreline. Lake County is also home to the Geysers, the largest geothermal field complex in the world and is overshadowed by Mt. Konocti an extinct volcano and Snow Mountain (7,056 feet). Lake County is also a part of the Blue Ridge Berryessa Natural Area, a mosaic of wild and range lands that includes working ranches, natural habitat and recreation lands. It is one of the last large landscapes in California that remains relatively undisturbed by the development of cities, towns and commerce. The local economy is based primarily on agriculture, tourism, and geothermal power.
