We took off to Northern California for the Month of July [emoticon]

Grant Lake near mammoth, CA
[image]

I was unaware that free Lake side camping exists in California, shhhh don't tell your friends [emoticon]
[image]

Nice little place to call home for the weekend
[image]

and a great spot to try out the inflatable kayaks
[image]

so sad to have to go
[image]

we headed to Reno where I had to work for the week, then headed further north. to volcanic country
[image]

to Medicine Lake
[image]

we are really liking our coleman double chair
[image]

had a nice paddle around the lake, while my daughter couldn't put her book down
[image]

Brett was in relax mode as well
[image]

we mustered up the energy to explore
[image]

nearby fire lookout

Mt Shasta in the distance along with little glass mountain

[image]

we also checked out the Ice Cave
[image]

From medicine lake via hwy 89 we headed to the coast via Klamath River Hwy and ended up finding a nice free campsite right on the river
[image]

and to Patricks Point State Park (this place is amazing)
[image]

newest addition to the TC
[image]

nice views around
[image]

[image]

Brett enjoyed the beach access to the tide pools
[image]

[image]

some neat history in the park
[image]

a canoe carved from redwood
[image]

Our ultimate destination was what I consider one of the best spots to park a truck camper for a pay campground: Gold Bluffs Beach, site 9 is by far the best
[image]

the beaches seem to be endless
[image]

[image]

[image]

The Forests straight from the garden of eden
[image]

and or Endor
[image]

[image]

[image]

its hard to believe this is so close to the ocean
[image]

This looks like old growth to me
[image]

there truly are some spectacular groves to see, with pretty much zero people around
[image]

most everyone goes to see Fern Canyon, but so many miss everything else. (disclaimer: this was a difficult picture to take without having people in the background)
[image]

riding the coastal trail
[image]

a point of interest along the way
[image]

fleeing from the hoards of mosquitos
[image]

yeah site 9 is pretty sweet
[image]

[image]

I thought it was funny how the rangers had a few trails closed due to the Roosevelt elk mothers protecting their young, yet the moms marched their young right through the campground
[image]

Next stop was back to the 89 near Mcloud, CA at Fowlers Camp
[image]

lower falls

middle falls
[image]

upper falls
[image]

kids wanting to go over the falls, just kidding
[image]

our final leg of the trip was a few days in Yosemite with my Bro and his Lance 830, we always seem to get lucky nabbing last minute reservations.

hope you enjoyed the tour [emoticon]

They made some of Jurasic Park up Fern Canyon. Living in the desert all I can see near Gold Beach is GREEN!

Thanks for sharing your trip. It brings back many memories for me. The view from the lookout on Little Mount Hoffman near Medicine Lake is spectacular, isn't it? And Gold Bluff Beach, what a gorgeous place and open only to those of us with vehicles small enough to be allowed down the road. (no trailers, max vehicle width 8 feet, max vehicle length 24 feet) When I was there, the camp was full and my Tiger was the largest vehicle.

I was out in that direction last week. We stayed at Bridgeport and visited the ghost town Bodie. Real interesting stuff to see. Had a feeling a lot of it was staged though. Who knows?

Great pictures. I was going to ask a question, but I'll have to look at the post and pictures again to figure it out.

Oh yeah! The inflatable Kayaks...how do you like those things? My girlfriend and I were thinking about picking a couple up a few weeks ago, but decided against it for now. We are kind of afraid of the quality and that they will literally be rubbery like an inflatable boat, and flex an awful lot when you move around in them. Not to mention fishing from them may be advised against. Does the material seem to be thin like I described, or do they get pretty firm when inflated?

Great trip. Great pictures.

I have a question related to your truck and bicycles. I want to take bicycles on our trips and am interested in how you load them on the front of your truck.
