Lone Pine to Home...

This is just my favorite thing to see....rivers/creeks running alongside the road. This would be my dream, to live right next to a river or creek...and be able to dip my toes in at anytime I wanted!

We took the 395 down from Bishop right into San Bernadino and over to the 10.

I spotted this cute little creek going up the pass, and asked Jeff to pull over so we could 'dip our toes in'...
SO T and I got in and it felt so good!

Then boredom sinks in....
.....and then FINALLY we made it home.....to 109 degree heat. Oh how I missed that heat! (NOT)
We had a WONDERFUL time and have so many other places we want to see....one of these days we'll have another grand adventure like this one!
Thanks for coming along and feel free to drop me a note here or on FaceBook... :)

Having fun in Tahoe

We ate a great breakfast and then biked down from the hotel to the beach, and spent the day there. It was incredible and I cannot believe I have not played here before!
The kids had a great time and even though the water was a little cold, they spent HOURS in it! The water was incredibly crystal clear and just wonderful!
Got me some sand, which is a really neat orangy color.
Here is a melody of pictures for you to enjoy

And we found a PIRATE STORE!!!!! Oh Me, Oh My!!!!!! It was closing, so we will come back tomorrow!!!! I cant wait!

From Lava Beds to Lake Tahoe!

Whew....I have to say I would really miss the Internet if it was gone, but once you cannot have it, it sort of melts away and the desperation melts away after two days.... LOL

So- we traveled over to The Lava Beds National Park....way out in the boondocks....and you would NOT guess there was anything out there!This is what you see for a couple of miles after you leave the entrance...you think, "Where is this Lava Bed?"
"Ahhhh...now I see some lava."
So let's go to the Visitor Center and sign up for a hike!
So we signed up for the Most-Challenging one-oops!
Down we go and Dad and I started panicking-"Can we do it?"
This is what we called, "LOW SPOT!" when ceilings were LOW...
Another cave to explore!

Capt. Jack's Stronghold-awesome!
T demonstrating what the Modoc's went through
Petroglyph Point

Working on their Jr. Rangers books
Becoming Jr. Rangers
More caving!
Mushpot cave- the easiest cave...we did last!
Winema Lodge- an old hunting lodge!
Luckily they had a gun rack so we could unload them from the van!
T playing with "Annie"
This place was really cool and the lady that took care of us was so great! Well worth the stay!

Now we are in Lake Tahoe and we are very excited to see what it is all about!!!! :)
