Home from heaven

What an incredible week we had! I can't even begin to tell you how fabulous our trip was, it was perfect. The only downer was that I was pretty sick through most of it, but the fact that I was camping made me feel good. I just wish I would have been able to smell the fresh scent of the wilderness! I kept asking the boys what it smelled like during certain parts of the trip. LOL!

Day One:

Blowing up the boat, swimming and setting up camp. Our campsite was just a few yards from the lake so we were in pure bliss.


Day Two:

20 mile trip deep into the High Sierras. The views of Yosemite and Mammoth were incredibly breath taking and the four wheeling was a blast. There are so many off the beaten path roads to take we didn't know which one to take, finally decided on one and had a ball.

Day Three:

Let's go for a trek into the Sierras! A six mile hike led us to Upper and Lower Twin Lakes. A long day that came with very sore feet and tired bodies, but worth every step.

Day Four:

Time to start sitting! We rented a pontoon boat and just spent the day on the lake. With water temps of 65-70 we couldn't resist jumping in then just laying around fishing from the boat. A PERFECT day!

Day's Five and Six:

Time spent with family and just enjoying our surroundings. We moved camp grounds and were very lucky to get a spot in the most popular campground right on the lake. My morning coffee with my toes in the water was such a treat! Once the rest of my family arrived, we played games, ate good food and talked about next year's trip which will most likely include a new family member. I'm off to book our trip for next year....I've put together a movie of our trip, it's long, but worth it! Enjoy! video
