We traveled 1,802 miles over a period of almost seven weeks (it turns out that we were only one day short of seven). During this period, we had thirteen stopovers.
Top Pic: Entrance to Golden Dome cave. Some of the caves (lava tubes) have steps at the entrance, but most don't.
This place has been on our bucket list for some time & we’re glad that we finally arrived. I think I see some lava tube/cave exploring on the horizon.
When ”plan A” didn’t work out, we moved on to ”plan B.” Needless to say, that didn’t play out either. Down the road, we found a great dispersed site at Rocky Point West - BLM on Eagle Lake. ”Plan C” rules!
After a month of dry camping in the desert, it's sweet to be back in trees. The campground is tucked in a grove of Jeffrey Pine Trees & is easy walking distance to Mammoth Lakes.
Top Pic: Mount Tom peaking through the clouds. It was one of those travel days that should have been easy, but... After adjusting plans a couple of times, we ended up at Horton Creek to avoid the storms at higher elevations.
Alabama Hills has been on our Bucket List for some time. We scored a scenic (but perhaps not that level) site just off Movie Road. Over 400 movies have been filmed in this area.
We have a sweet spot in the Mesquite Spring campground. Unlike the overcrowded main campgrounds, there are only a few campers here each night.
This unique canyon is one of the few places where the Mojave River flows above ground. A good stopping spot not far from the highway.

We found a very nice area for dispersed camping. We saw very few campers in this spacious area that offered lots of level space to camp.
One of the activities we are enjoying in SoCal is hiking. There is an amazing number of hikes available within driving distance from Jojoba Hills, and there’s BLM land just outside our park's gate that offers random single-track dirt roads and trails to explore. Here’s a brief recap of the Februa...

The December Hikes with JoJoba Hills Hikers were: Wild Horse Trail, Kelly Ditch Trail, & Lake Hodges Trail.
Wild Horse Trail, December 29th
This week's Jojoba Hills hike started at the Dripping Springs Campground on Hwy 79 South...
Our chili pepper lights continue their Christmas tradition while we're at Jojoba Hills in Southern California. We're hoping everyone has a wonderful day with family & friends!
"We arrived at our lot in Jojoba Hills to find a Bird of Paradise welcoming us along with an orange and a lemon tree. How cool is that?"
"It's like déjà vu all over again." We pulled into the same RV park in Tehachapi, on the same day exactly one year later, and got the same site. How about that?

We found a delightful RV Park on Clear Lake, the largest freshwater lake in CA & one of the oldest natural freshwater lakes in North America.
We moved over to the Humboldt County Fairgrounds and will be spending Thanksgiving with a couple of RV friends, John & Sue that we met in northern Washington a few years ago. Life is good!
