1st trip
Yella-B messaged me about a midweek camping trip, and who am I to turn down a night of peace and solitude when the masses are at home trying to be just like all the other masses.
:y:

CG was unoccupied, and really only one of two side roads that are not blocked off and closed to vehicles anymore. It was dusty and warm, but cooled off at night and the fire bowl was actually nice to have along.

I had a couple of ideas for short hikes over the course of the two days, and they turned out great. This is such a nice area as the seasons change. The trees that Peter planted (or was it his dad? :-k ) were in an explosive bumper crop this year and the deer didn't seem to mind watching as we picked our share. I always thought this area had a high density of bears, but you wouldn't know it from the lack of them harvesting these easy calorie-laden winter reserves.

California smoke made for a picturesque sunset over the Mazzies. Colors along the creeks was just getting going but quite lovely nonetheless. Of course, nothing compares to Lockett Meadow though, so just keep going there. We put the effort in to find a small waterfall that for some reason I hadn't been to before, and enjoyed finding a patch of wild mint growing nearby. After a couple of fresh mojitos, it was time to return to cell service and take a moment to be like everybody else. The guy who signs my paycheck appreciates it once in a while. :)

Back home it was time for pie, strudel, cider, tart, butter, sauce, fritters, and pancakes.
:FG:
