We gave ourselves a present and went away from Lodi for a week in the mountains. We headed back to the area where we work-camped last year. However, we went up higher in the Sierra’s and camped where our old boss is host. Wayne and Char work for CLM as camp hosts and site manager. We were able to get a great spot right next to them, yet almost by ourselves.
We weren’t there more than 5 minutes when the forest aroma’s and the fresh air was a delightful sense. Then the rains came. A huge storm system was coming through with lightening and thunder and buckets full of rain. I’m sure it was needed but it played heck with setting up! It was so refreshing.
The week was filled with almost NOTHING! I was able to sit outside each day – a balmy 70+ degrees and no mosquitoes! I knitted and read and spent part of the afternoon chatting with Char. Dale was able to get on his bike and go for a ride on familiar roads.
We really did enjoy the quiet and blackness of night – two important factors to RVers. The birds were happily singing each morning. We even had some spring flowers like paint brush and daisy’s flowering in September.
Morgan and I hiked to Sand Pond and then on the interpretive walk that doubled back to Sand Pond. One morning we all got up and hiked to Sardine Lake. The trails were very nice and Morgan was delighted to be out again in surroundings she knew. We left Annie home with the folks and she was pretty upset with us when we got home. She didn’t like her home
not being out front where she knew it should be!
Enjoy the photos. We are looking forward to another “vacation” in the future.
Life is good! God is good.
