It’s been almost two years since we’ve gone camping, and with all this quarantine stuff going on, and having to postpone the wedding, I desperately needed to get away from this house and everything inside.
SS and I decided to venture outside of our box, and took a drive. A drive that landed us 2.5 hours from home, near a lake, and a river. And it was beautiful.
After setting up our camp, which looks so small in this photo, I climbed up a big mountain, and looked out over the area. I was stunned at how beautiful the scenery really was. (All those black spots, are COWS).
I sat there, staring at the beauty, for over 30 minutes, before I decided I was probably too sunburnt to continue to sit there.
We only stayed one night, just in case we didn’t like it. We didn’t want to be stuck somewhere for 3-4 days, if it was going to be horrible. And since we’ve never been there before, we had to try it. So one night is all we did.
I forgot our air mattress at home, so we had to sleep on the ground. I can tell you this with 100% certainty, I am too old to be sleeping on the ground. And this exact thing, is why I’m grateful we only stayed one night.
There are a few other places out there that we wanted to check out, so that is what we will do next. A few more one-nighters, and maybe we will find our place.
I’ll keep you updated on our search for the perfect camping spot. In the meantime, if you know of a place in Cali, let me know!
