We left the grimy, busy Reno area and headed south on 395 again. This was new territory for us, we had never ventured further south on 395 when we lived in Herlong, California all those years ago. Our plan was to get down into some of the good boondocking areas in the lower Sierra Nevadas that the West is famous for. I have read countless inviting blog posts from other RVers who have had so much fun down here.
Eventually we knew we would be headed into Yosemite through it's east entrance on highway 120. We are fighting weather as a cold front is supposed to be headed in, and we wanted to make it over Tioga pass. Tioga pass is the highest elevation passing in the West and exceeds 10,000 feet in elevation.
|Mono Lake, California|
Next morning we pulled in the slides and headed over to the lake to see what we could see.
|Our amazing paddle on Mono Lake among the Tufas... AWESOME!|
|Check out the SALT on Dad's hand! |
We were covered with it!
Though the wind had picked up measurably, we just had to risk a quick paddle in the lake around the Tufas. We are SO glad we did! Within minutes after getting off the water the weather arrived... Whew!
We loaded up and headed out 120 for YOSEMITE!! WOO HOO!! We will update you tomorrow! We miss you all so much! Watch for more Facebook LIVE broadcasts! Love, Mom.
