June Lake, CA

Thursday we left home and got here in time for lunch.  Pulled over into a pull out after going through one of the campgrounds but pretty crowded. Got our favorite site here at OH RIDGE campground.  NFS so it's $12.50 a night (reg price $25.00) which is steep for a NFS campground but remember we're in CA.  The booth was already closed and no pay envelopes to be found anywhere. 

Enjoyed the afternoon and then had a nice fire and and hot dogs for dinner.  We don't eat them very often (they were the lean kind)...so they were awesome. 
Ready to go!

Still caught some Aspens

Just gorgeous mountains
Happy Hour

Ken went up to pay Friday morning and was told our site was reserved for Friday night so we had to move.  This happened two years ago when we were here before. They only staff the booth this time of year for about 2 hours in the morning.  This campground on Reserve America has a 12 hour window for reservations which at this time of year is just ridiculous.  So we moved to another site for the night.  Two years ago no one came in to the reserved site and as of yesterday evening no one was there yet..we'll check this am.  Any way  don't think we'll be back with out reservations..maybe in the summer if any of the grandkids area available.  The lake is awesome as are the views! We did check when we left and no one had come in over night.  uhhh..

Yesterday afternoon we drove to June Lake Brewing in the little town of June Lake. Enjoyed a flight and Ken had a 20 oz (I forget what)..he also helped me with the flight.  I'm not much of a beer drinker (except a Corona Light on a hot summer day that's pulled out of an ice chest)..but it was a good atmosphere.  Lots of people there drinking beer and visiting the food truck that comes daily.  A good little business there.  
June Lake Brewing..quite a few senior citizens on tour!

Then back to camp I made some sandwiches and we went down to the lake and had lunch and watched a couple of para sailers out on the water.  It was really windy and when it got cool we headed back to camp and a nice fire.  Ken bar b qed some awesome pork and I made homemade au gratin potatoes.  

This morning we took it easy getting out of there and heading home.  Love that it's only 110 miles from home!  

Loved this..Cosmos growing wild!

So now we are here till Tuesday morning when we'll head for Winnemucca for Ken's last appointment with our DR.  One day turnaround.  Wednesday morning we have an appointment in Minden to get the front windows tinted on the newer Patriot.
