A huge & lush park with golf, geocaching & hiking in a rather un-likely place along Hwy 395 in NE California
Site quality = 3.5/5
We’re rolling north, towards the mountains and pine tress, on the road to green grass and lush meadows. We’re on one of our absolute favorite highways Hwy 395, but we’re driving it further north than we’ve ever been. As we motor down the relaxing 2-lane road and pass into California we see the landscape change -> spatterings [...]
We’ve reached the end of yet another year of RVing and it’s the perfect time to reflect back. We started this whole adventure 4 years ago with the idea of “trying it out for a year”. Each year we re-evaluate and decide if we want to keep going and so far the answer has always [...]
Whenever I’m out in the boonies I’m inspired to photograph. Something about the wide, open desert and the way it glows golden in the early morning & late evening light makes it particularly gorgeous. Who can resist those long shadows? Or that warm hue? Or just the sheer magnitude of space and view? I never [...]
Hiking alone with pooch is one of my very favorite things. We hike at the same pace, she’s infinitely patient whenever I pull out the camera and we never need to talk…the perfect partnership. When we launch into the wilds it’s just us, the wide, open trail and the mesmerizing deepness of nature. Polly will [...]
Having churned your brains to mush with some heavy posts on health and medical, I figured I would allow you a reprieve with some light and easy stuff today. After all Paul is away, the mouse is all alone and you know what I’m like in these circumstances. Much to everyone’s disappointment (I’m sure) I’ve [...]
We’re settled into a monthly spot at one of our favorite lay-your-head-back-and-soak-yourself-to-a-jellyblob-of-happiness RV campgrounds. It’s one of the very few private campgrounds we frequent on a regular basis, so much so that we’ve been here every year since we discovered it. It’s quirky, the decor is gaudy and it’s kind of in the middle of [...]
I left you hanging in the last post with the horror of an RV Halloween gathering right around the corner. Ooooooooo….
It all started with the ominous convergence of not just two, but three young & nutty RV couples right here in the Alabama Hills. Watsons Wander crept out of their BLM campground and [...]
We’re back in one of my favorite places…tucked into a private boondocking spot in the zany rocks of the Alabama Hills. I’ve blogged about this area many times before and it’s a go-to stop for us everytime we drive 395. I call it our “putzing” spot ‘coz that’s mostly what we do when we’re [...]
