A Sneak Peek At Our Shangri-La

Lake Basin Recreational Area, Sierra Mountains
Gold Lake
It's Muy Tranquila here!
There are 50 unspoiled alpine lakes in the Lakes Region, a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from one another. Rivers and creeks galore. The area offers hiking, swimming, fishing, horseback riding, abundant wild flowers, kayaking, cross-country skiing; enough to keep most people entertained for a decade. Did I mention golf courses at just about every turn. And, there are deer and buck and cows and sheep, and howling coyotes off in the distance at night. Happy birds chirping all day. Woodpeckers shyly peeking around trees. Soaring eagles too.

The Mill Pond at the edge of the village of Graeagle. Wonderfully warm, clear sapphire water for swimming. We attended a fiddlers concert here last week.

Darrell caught fresh trout, as requested, for our dinner last night.

Did I mention, there's a bit of FUNK up here as well?

This is one of the funkiest RV Park's we have visited. Beautiful gardens, friendly owners, mountain and meadow views, and evening walks in the woods. As much as we love it here, tomorrow we head out to a more remote spot high in Plumas Eureka National Forest on a river for a few days. Sparky's pretty content too.

Doing what Spark does best.

Time to hike and swim. Later Gators.
