Huntington Lake

Leaving the great national parks of Yosemite and Kings Canyon, we decided to find a low-key place to spend a week before heading up to Auburn and Grass Valley in June.  I picked Huntington Lake off the map because it looked like it was in a good place--right between Yosemite and Kings Canyon, up at about 7,000 feet, with a decent road to get there.  Plus the Deer Creek campground had great reviews on

When we arrived yesterday, the campground was full and it looked like tent city.  Each campsite had at least 3 tents, 4 cars and 2 kids.  Welcome to summer (Memorial Day weekend, no less) in California!  But our site was nice and the area looked beautiful, so we were content. This morning everybody left.  I mean every campsite was open but ours and the camp hosts.  I guess we'll have a quiet week here!

We went on a hike today to Rancheria Falls.  Very beautiful little falls on a 2-mile trail.  And because it is national forest, not national park, we could bring Tucker.
