CAMPING IN CALIFORNIA

After driving north on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California we found out that we couldn't go to Yosmite National Park because the roads were still closed.  We had only one choice of roads to cross the mountains going west and there was one campground on that road that we planned to stay at.  We thought we would never get out of the mountains!  They just went on and on!  The campground was 6 miles from the highway, but it was worth it.  The pictures do not do it justice at all.


There was a board walk following the river.
It was so picturesque!  Clear, cold water flowing down from the mountains as the snow melted.  We saw lots of snow that hadn't melted yet!
A pathway through the woods.  I love forests and streams!
You can't really tell from the picture, but it is a dogwood tree that is blooming.



We were miles from civilization!  DH sitting alongside the rapids!    Stay tuned for more pictures.
