Red Rock

Red Rock

After we left Death Valley, we went to Red Rock State Park. There’s a small campground there, first come first served.  We were luck enough to not only get a site for two nights but to get a really nice site with a level concrete pad and good picnic table. Site number 6, folks. That’s…

If I Fits, I Sits

If I Fits, I Sits

There is a concept known to all cats, from the tiniest house kitten to the largest tiger. That concept is, “If I fits, I sits.” What this means to the cat is that any kind of container that the cat can manage to sit in, even if most of the cat overflows the container, becomes…

Eagle Lake

Eagle Lake

It seems that there’s more than one Eagle Lake in California, which I suppose shouldn’t surprise anybody. We do have lakes, and we do have eagles. There’s one down by Lake Tahoe, and there’s one to the Northwest of Susanville. There may be a dozen others.  We went camping at Merrell Campground at the Eagle…

Alaska Cruise 2018

Alaska Cruise 2018

Back to Alaska! It never gets old. This is the ten day, round trip San Francisco that visits the usual ports of call and goes to Glacier Bay.  I think a ten day cruise is just about ideal.  More than ten and Bob starts getting restless. Seven isn’t quite enough, although it’s nice. And let’s…

Great American Eclipse

Great American Eclipse

I’d been stalking this eclipse for more than ten years. The eclipse path traveled all the way across the United States from Oregon to the East Coast. We decided to go up several days early and visit Crater Lake. I’d seen plenty of photos of Crater Lake, but they hadn’t prepared me for the fact…

Salt Point State Park

Salt Point State Park

We’re having a really hot summer here, and we decided to flee to the coast for a camping trip at Salt Point State Park. Coastal campgrounds fill up in the summer, and it’s not a slam-dunk to find anything at all, but Salt Point did have availability. This park doesn’t have hookups, showers, or a…

Bodega Bay

Bodega Bay

Bodega Dunes Campground In early May of 2017, we did a camping trip to the Bodega Bay area, specifically to the Sonoma Coast State Beach. We stayed at the Bodega Dunes Campground, which is a fairly small campground off Highway 1.  Campsites are assigned on arrival, so we did a drive-around and picked a nice…

Orland Buttes

Orland Buttes

We’re still doing short shake-down trips with the new Winnie and the traveling cat. Not sure if we’re shaking down the Winnebago or the cat, but caution is probably good with either one. Orland Buttes is a small campground on Black Butte Lake near Orland, California. It’s run by the Army Corps of Engineers, and…

Traveling Cat

Traveling Cat

For our first trip out with the Winnebago and Sophie the Traveling Cat, we thought it was good not to go too far from home. Who could tell how either of those would act? So, we went to Loafer Creek. This is a nice place, part of the Lake Oroville Recreation Area, and we’ve spent…
