Sunrise on Gold Lake, Sierra County, California.
Have you been following me on Facebook? I seem to be a little more active there lately, than I am on this Blog. If you have, then you would know that Jeff & I just returned from another adventure in Northeastern California.
We 4-wheeled in to the OHV campground at the back side of Gold Lake, one of our favorite off-the-beaten-path locations. Our friend, Jeff, came along too and he had never been 4-wheeling before! I hiked in to the campground with our dog, Cocoa, while spotting for the two Jeff’s. Cocoa thought that was pretty cool!
When we arrived, someone was camped in “our” favorite spot. We were really disappointed at first, but it didn’t take us long to get over it. We found a better spot, one which was always occupied before.
Oh boy, did we luck out. We ended up in a large campsite at the end of the campground. We had room for 5 or 6 tents and our own private beach for the boats! The campground was built with OHV Green Sticker funds and all of the sites had new tables, fire rings and some even had “Bear Boxes.” The outhouse near our camp was a room with a view (no roof). It was great on starlit nights, but not so good when it rained!
During our stay we kayaked, hiked, relaxed, told stories, ate great food, drank great beer and came home with lot’s of new images! I’m giving this trip a 10 out of 10! I guess the weather and water could have been a wee bit warmer. But, there are always trade-offs! If the weather was warmer, chances are the sky would have been boring. We would not have had the wonderful light shows we had = less photo opportunities!
Fall Photo Tours & Workshops Coming Soon! I am really excited to announce that I will be leading several half & full day Fall Gold Country Photo Tours & Workshops, scheduled for October & November. Since there will not be much advance notice, they will be offered at a special “2 for 1″ price. More information on this coming soon on this Blog, on Facebook and in our October Newsletter!
As always, thanks for visiting and your comments and questions are greatly welcomed and appreciated!
