One of my favorite things is an empty campground, and this was the situation at Loon Lake this time. Mid week, September… perfect for camping. Weather was delightful and even got a little rain on the last morning. Kate went with me and Ben and Charlie this time. Not much swimming because the water was about 10 degrees cooler than August. And the bees/wasps were less annoying this time. Charlie and Ben both rode in the kayaks. Fishing was much improved, caught a couple, one decent sized. Charlie was a handful as all puppies are but he loved it and he is so cute to watch his excitement and enthusiasm. What a character. Ben over did himself as always and was kind of limping near the end of the three days. I think his feet were sore or possibly some sore muscles. He is back to normal now. In the video below, the two items that Charlie was caught eating were a dead, petrified fish and horse poop. Nice, huh.
This was Charlie’s first camping experience with Ben and me. He had a wonderful time. He had a blast picking up anything and everything in his mouth. Tons of new things to sniff and hold. Continue reading “Jackson Meadows September #4 with Charlie”

Ben and I had a great time up at Jackson Meadows, again this year. Lake was down about ten feet but not as bad as a year ago this time. Pass Creek was as low as I’ve ever seen it. Continue reading “Jackson Meadows August 2016 #3”
Ben and I went up to Loon Lake for three days, the last week in July. A hot week (mid 90s) with lots of bees, gnats, flies and general bugs. Otherwise, it was beautiful. Swimming was great. Continue reading “Loon Lake July 2016 #2”
This was the second campout this year after Biggs passed away about three weeks ago. So, its difficult being in these mountain settings that we all hiked around, napped and swam in together. Continue reading “Jackson Meadows #2”
This was our first trip to Loon lake this year and it was extremely sad. We lost our littlest member of our family, little Mr. Biggs, on 6/23/16, just the day before our trip. It was good however in that we got to process our grief through reflection on his wonderful life, and all the good times we all had. Continue reading “Biggs Point at Loon Lake”
I flew the DJI Phantom 3 last week over Rollins Lake Dam. I also tried working with Adobe Premiere Pro for the first time.
In early May I went on my first RV trip of 2016. My friend Gary and his pup, Benetar, caravan-ed down 395 from Carson City to Lee Vining. We took cameras, drones, and plenty of beer and snacks. We stopped first nite at Lower Twin Lakes campground Continue reading “Highway 395 Trip Along Eastern Slope of the Sierra”
Kate and I took a brief vacation and went to our favorite place in Ft. Bragg, the Beachcomber Motel. You can see it in the video below at the end of the trestle bridge. There is a walkway going from Glass Beach Continue reading “Mendocino Coastline at Fort Bragg, CA”
