Series The Massive Arc De Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel is a solid piece of architecture standing at the top of Champs-Élysées. It is also the world's second largest triumphal arch after Pyongyang's, and designed similar to the Arch of Titus which stands near the entrance to the Roman Forum. It was begun by Napoleon in 1806 and finished more than 20 years after his defeat in 1815 by General Wellington.

Although there were many nice campgrounds along Gilman Road, Hirz Bay was adjacent to a boat ramp for launching boats into Shasta Lake. Hirz Bay campground was also well maintained and quite spacious. Unfortunately it is difficult to capture an entire campground with one lame photo.
