I’ve been traveling with Cousin #3 for the past four weeks, including one week in Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite. So that we could arrive in Tuolumne sufficiently early to give us a chance at getting an unreserved, first-come-first-served space, we camped the night before outside Yosemite in the Stanislaus National Forest along Hwy. 120 – in the general vicinity of what is now the Rim Wildfire.
We started our trip in Amador County (the “Gold Country”); proceeded to Yosemite/Tuolumne Meadows; took the Tioga Pass (Hwy 120) east to Mono Lake, Mammoth Lakes and the ghost town of Bodie; then took 395 north to Tahoe. We fled Tahoe on Friday (8/23) because of the poor air quality resulting from the Rim Fire.
Cousin #3 took a plane from the Bay Area back to SoCal earlier this week and I headed for what I thought was a members-only RV camp at Russian River resort area of California.
Turns out there’s a difference between Russian River the resort area, and Russian River the river, which runs through several towns. Furthermore, the members-only RV camp lets in the public. Unfortunately, the public is who I’m trying to avoid. I’ll figure out something or other. Soon.
So I’m at the Russian River (in Cloverdale) to gather my thoughts, do a bit of work for clients, download photos and post blogs. Soon.
