Subtitle – Some you can, some you can’t

We planned on heading to Horse Creek Campground at Lake Kaweah, where we enjoyed a stay a few years ago. It’s a Corps of Engineers facility, which, in our experience, are generally very good.

This time it was not to be, as the campground gates were locked shut. It turns out that the campground was flooded from all the rain and snow melt coming off the mountains to the East.

So we stayed overnight at Lemon Cove Village RV park, a few miles down the highway, and booked a site for a couple of nights at Camp Edison on Shaver Lake for the following 2 days.

Holy cow! The road after the Auberry turn-off goes from about 2,000 feet to 5,000 feet in just a few short miles, literally going up the side of a mountain. By the time we reached Camp Edison, we were near 6,000 feet up.

Clear, sunny and warm in the morning, thunder and rain and cool in the afternoon both days. That’s fine 🙂
