It was so cool in the mountains between 4000 and 5000 ft. in elevation, but much hotter in Sacramento. Today it will climb up to 108 so I will need to go out early to run any errands I want, and then kick back and stay home for the afternoon. I want to go to the gym this evening.
I took two cameras with me and both gave me problems, so I used whichever worked at the time. When I put the cards into my computer to upload the photos, they end up in different areas of iPhoto, so selecting the pictures is going to take a while.
Here are a couple of pics from just before I got to the CG and when I first arrived. The CG was so quiet except for the noise from nearby Rt. 20. It was very noticeable the first 24 hours and then I found I just didn't hear much of it. (Please click on a picture to enlarge it.)
My new tent, and Thursday night's campfire.
The rest of the family arrived on Friday:
Meg, with hers and Steve's tent in the background:
Jeannie & Donald setting up, with Steve supervising:
Anyone for a bike ride?
I switched to my big tent and just had to be careful with the zippers, which tent to pull away from the teeth.
Joe & Sarah bought a new tent for the trip and it is a big one. Even has a back door (so they can sneak out without the kids!)
Jeannie & Arianna were tired out after all that work:
The guys spent a lot of time trying to light a fire without matches. They made a spindle and all, and got smoke but never an ember. I'm going to send them all to survival school:
Right here I apologize for the length of this entry and all the pictures. I'll continue tomorrow.
