For 35+ years we have been camping in the high Sierras each summer. We started the camping/fishing trip with our children when they we young and now it is fun to see the grandchildren enjoying the trip as well. This was our weekend for camping.
The elevation is quite high - 9800 feet so the temperatures are considerably cooler up there. The temperatures drop into the upper 30s and low 40s at night. The air is so light and any exercise makes you realize you can quickly huff and puff. The scenery is just spectacular and snow is still to be seen.

|Doesn't it look like a bear is carved into this tree?|

|Ghost stories....not needed after our first night with the real bears!!!!|
There was time for some hand sewing on the 6 1/2 hour drive which I always enjoy. I had hoped to do a little more at the campground, but that wasn't how it worked out. Sigh!
