On To Craggy Wash

Chuck  We spent 12 days at Park Sierra SKP Park by Coarsegold CA. and is near Yosemite National Park. The last weekend we were blessed to have Jan’s brother Ron and his friend Scarlet join us. It was a planned biking trip for them. They are accomplished mountain bikers and we were happy to share a part of their outing. We walked in the valley and they biked in the area. It was good to spend time with them.

My friend Art reminds me that Yosemite is “an urban park”. Even in the fall it is a playground for the metro areas. Lots of people who drive fast and need pass you only to put on the brakes for the next corner.

The fall colors were just magnificent, and a good time was had by all.

This is of course Half Dome. The next day we left the area and journeyed on to Pahrump, NV. Once again we bumped into fellow Boomers Art and Connie. At this time they have traveled on to the Encampment at Death Valley. We considered going there and will someday, however there is no cell or data service and our air card and phones will not work.

I took Jan to the airport in Las Vegas Thursday. She made a scheduled visit to her parents. She will be there for about ten days. I am in one of my favorite boondock  spots…. Lake Havasu City, AZ, Craggy Wash, FB (N 34.59450 W114.35905) 895’. It offers great scenery and lots of hiking. It has been very quiet and I have no neighbors nearby.

Happy Trails
