How about those triple-digit days last week? Pretty brutal. If there’s one thing we can count on in the North State, it’s the summertime heat. The good news, especially for those of us without swimming pools of our own, is that we are surrounded by some pretty sweet spots to take a dip.

From a municipal fountain in the city center to the wide-open water at Lake Oroville, Butte County residents can take respite at dozens of locations. Here’s a look, through the lens of CN&R photography intern John Domogma, at some of the prime spots to cool down when Butte County heats up.
