High school graduation is right around the corner for students.

This year will be special for one local high school, Tranquillity High.

Nearly every student qualifies for a free lunch and while their income may be low their grades are high.

In fact, Wednesday was the first-ever College Signing Day. It was revealed that the vast majority are going to college with 96% of the graduating class set to go on to get a higher education.

On Wednesday evening, students bound for college were given a huge pat on the back inside the gym at Tranquillity High School. The messages were all meant to inspire the crowd of high school seniors. Most of them were sporting their brand new college gear.

“I was the first one in my family to graduate 8th grade, let alone college. I’d never thought I’d make it,” said Principal, Vincent Gonzalez. “I challenge you to take the risk like I did, tigers.”

Like Gonzalez, also a Tranquillity High alum, some students are breaking barriers.

“I’m pretty proud of myself,” said Carlos Morales who was accepted to University of California, Santa Barbara. “My mom, she motivated me all the way and I’m the first one to actually graduate high school and be the first one to go to college too.”

11 seniors will graduate with an Associate of Arts Degree from West Hills Community College in Coalinga before graduating from high school.

One of those students is Rodrigo Cortez. But he says he wasn’t always college bound.

“I was under the impression that I wasn’t smart and I wouldn’t make it in anything. A whole year passed by and I believed that,” Cortez said.

Cortez says a teacher called him aside his sophmore year.

“He signed me up for one class and that one class changed my life,” he explained.

He enrolled in the dual enrollment program. With a lot of late nights, he got ahead. He’ll be studying nursing at Fresno State in the Fall.

The teacher that helped him get to the next level was Espi Sandoval. He’s the head of the dual enrollment program at the school.

“We want to end the circle of poverty,” Sandoval said. “Education is the key and that’s what we tell all these kids.”

The school says 97% of its students qualify for free and reduced lunch. Despite this, the district says the graduation rates are soaring along with the pursuit of higher education.

“It’s pretty phenomenal,” said Superintendent Martin Macias.

Golden Plains Unified School District currently has 40 8th graders that are enrolled in college classes.

High-country sea of tranquillity

I have arrived at campsites by foot or by Subaru wagon many times but never by boat. Until about this time last summer, when I found myself skippering a small motorboat: On board were my partner, Julie, our drooling but seaworthy Labrador and half the contents of our garage.

Our destination was the far side of Florence Lake, deep in the Sierra Nevada at the end of a steep, narrow and possibly nauseating 20-mile road. The road alone, impassable to large motor homes, filters out the masses.

In other words, no one gets to Florence Lake by accident.

The lake is one of several high-country reservoirs for Southern California Edison’s massive hydroelectric power system in the western Sierra. The lake is almost entirely surrounded by the John Muir Wilderness, a 584,000-acre patch of land covered by mountains, forests and the kind of scenery worthy of the great conservationist’s name.

The easiest access points, however, are in the eastern Sierra. On the western side, where we were, reaching the popular wilderness requires a long mountain drive, a hike or both. In exchange for the hassle, visitors to remote haunts such as Florence Lake get quiet.

The lake is massive — it’s more than two miles long and a mile wide — but there’s a strict 15 mph speed limit for boats, which makes it impractical for water-skiing and unthinkable for ripping about on a Jet Ski. The road also keeps big boat trailers at bay.

Lodging is in short supply. A Forest Service campground called Jackass Meadow sits below the lake’s dam. From there, it’s about a 10-minute drive to the lake. Save for a handful of private cabins and a small store that sells groceries and rents boats, the area is undeveloped.

We arrived on a Thursday in mid-July, armed with a hiking map but no knowledge of the lay of the land. The woman who works at the store rented us a 15-foot aluminum boat ($165 for three days) and gave us a brief tutorial on how to operate the 8-horsepower engine.

We acted as if we were listening, proceeded to somehow plow our craft into a parked boat and then were merrily on our way.

A word of warning to busybodies who like to plan: Camping at Florence Lake is a highly casual affair. You can reserve your boat ahead of time by e-mail, but there is no official campground or officially delineated campsites. Instead, visitors motor around the lake until they find a nice spot.

The area is certainly captivating, with all the treats to be expected of the Sierra — snowy peaks, thickly forested slopes and exposed granite formations in seemingly every direction. At the far side of the lake sits the big hump that is Florence Rock, which rises about 380 feet out of the water.

Reservoirs can be unsightly, often getting that ring-around-the-bathtub look as they are drawn down over the summer. Florence managed to avoid that, probably because the previous winter brought deep snows that had filled the lake. It also helped that we there early in the summer.

For the next 20 minutes, we motored the length of the lake, passing a small island where it’s possible to camp and have 360-degree views of the area — although that also means everyone can see everything you do. From there, we powered our way down the increasingly narrow inlet of the South Fork of the San Joaquin River, an area best reached early in the season, before the lake’s levels start to fall.

After checking out several potential spots, we settled on a flat and spacious site that had been improved by visitors over the years. It boasted plenty of shade, a fire ring, a dilapidated picnic bench and bear boxes to protect food from marauding beasts. There was even an old outhouse, a luxury in these parts.

There was also a small sandy beach, and at water’s edge we found two large boulders flat enough to accommodate a pair of portable lounge chairs. Our dog Molly, a chocolate Lab, indicated her approval in the ill-mannered way that pooches convey their good cheer and then spent the afternoon swimming.

We spent the next three days fly-fishing, napping (it’s a hobby) and hiking. Although it is certainly a sweet spot to be on the water, Florence Lake is probably better known for the access it provides to some great trails, including Pacific Crest and John Muir.

Many lake visitors don’t rent boats. Instead, they take the water taxi operated by the Florence Lake store to the far side and hop on a trail that loosely follows the San Joaquin. Some folks backpack; others walk or ride horses rented from a stable at the lake’s far end to the Muir Trail Ranch, a private parcel within the wilderness that features luxury tent cabins.

In our case, from our campsite we followed a trail that spanned the river on a beautiful wooden bridge, then climbed uphill to a connection with the main trail. From there we trekked nine miles through forest and meadows before turning around at vast Blayney Meadows, a lovely spot beneath the ramparts that on this day was very green; three horses from the ranch were out grazing and exchanged sniffs with our dog.

Late Sunday afternoon, we threw our belongings back in the boat. (Next time, we’ll bring a kayak or float tube so that if we want to go fishing or for a short paddle, we won’t have to fire up the outboard engine.) On our way back to the store, we made several loops around the lake, not wanting our four-day excursion to end.

Finally, we returned to the dock and called it a weekend by successfully plowing into another parked boat.

In the wilderness

GETTING THERE:

From Los Angeles, it is about 310 miles to Florence Lake. Take Interstate 5 north to California 99 north. In Fresno, take California 168 to Huntington Lake. Just past Sierra Summit ski area, turn right onto Kaiser Pass Road, a nice, paved, two-lane road for two miles. The final 20 miles are one- to 1 1/2 lanes wide. It’s easily navigable by car or SUV, but it’s a white-knuckle and pothole-ridden slog.

WHERE TO STAY:

Campsites around Florence Lake are first-come, first-camped and require no permits. There are a dozen or so sites right on the water.

Jackass Meadow Campground, information (559) 893-2111, reservations, (877) 444-6777, https://www.reserveusa.com . Forty-eight improved campsites near the river with paved parking, restrooms, tables and fire pits. $14 per night per site.

DARK TRANQUILLITY will release its new album, "Moment", on November 20 via Century Media.

It's been four years since DARK TRANQUILLITY's Swedish Grammis-nominated album "Atoma". But the time between was creative, innovative, and adventurous. The band welcomed two top-tier guitarists — Christopher Amott (ex-ARCH ENEMY) and Johan Reinholdz (NONEXIST) — while writing a stunning cluster of songs that not only push DARK TRANQUILLITY's boundaries outward but also strongly typify the Swedes' sonic fingerprint. Recorded at Nacksving Studios and Rogue Music by Martin Brändström and then mixed/mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios, "Moment" is a riveting yet challenging journey from start to finish.

Founding DARK TRANQUILLITY guitarist Niklas Sundin announced his departure from the band in March, explaining in a statement that he "always enjoyed the creative process more than the performance aspects of being in a band, and the required extensive touring held less and less appeal with every album."

In early 2017, DARK TRANQUILLITY released a seven-inch single featuring the two songs — "The Absolute" and "Time Out Of Place" — which had previously only been released as bonus tracks of the limited-edition CD version of "Atoma". These cuts were the most experimental and daring numbers ever from the DARK TRANQUILLITY camp, featuring a very different approach to their usual brand of melodic death metal.
