In today’s video, we head to Crater Lake National Park and are surprised to find it still COVERED in snow. It’s been over 100 degrees in Tucson (where we are from) so we were flabbergasted by the amount of snow still left here in mid-June. Crater Lake was still absolutely beautiful but we definitely want to some back in the summer one year to enjoy the hikes we couldn’t do. Did you know Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the US and second deepest in the world? It also has NO rivers or creeks leading into it. It is a volcanic crater that has filled with rain/snow over the years. Very cool!
We finish up the video by hitching up and heading out towards Bend. Plus we figure out our hitch issue! We think!
In today’s video, we make a quick stop for a tasting at Mount Shasta Brewing Company. Next stop is a 4-mile hike to three waterfalls at the McCloud Waterfall Trail. This is one of our favorite hikes in this area. The middle falls was absolutely spectacular! We highly recommend it…and you can park and walk to all three falls! So this is perfect for any fitness or skill level. We got to see some whitewater kayakers take on the lower falls while we ate our lunch at the trailhead. Very cool! We’re moving on from the Mount Shasta area. Stay tuned for Oregon!
In today’s video, we enjoy some lakeside hiking north of Redding California then pack up the Airstream and leave the Wonderland RV Park to head up the mountains. We find a spot at the free Lake Shastina Campground right on the lake. Can’t beat this!
In today’s video, we’re heading out of the Truckee area and into California Gold Mine Country. We wanted to be close to Sacremento over Memorial Day in order to have any easy drive to get work done on the trailer. Plus we knew we should have reservations for the holiday weekend. We found Tuttletown online and decided to try it. Check it out with us!
In today’s video, we stroll through historic Truckee and get a few souvenirs. Yum! Truckee is an adorable town and one we definitely want to come back to. We also head out on an adventure to find Webber Falls….what we didn’t anticipate was the snow!
In today’s video, we are doing some exploring of the area around Utah Lake including hiking a waterfall (our third choice for a waterfall but it was still beautiful!). We also get a birds-eye view of our campsite at Miners Canyon from our hike up the hill. Lastly, we enjoy a night out for some Thai food which was special and delicious.
In today’s video, we share our last couple days around Bryce Canyon. We hike some of the Fairyland Trail out to Tower Bridge, go hiking in Red Canyon to get up close and personal with the hoodoos and enjoy some delicious pie at the Bryce Canyon Pines before hitching up and heading out to our next destination… Utah Lake.
In today’s video, we decided to take a day trip to Kodachrome Basin State Park which was about 40 minutes from where we were boondocking outside of Bryce. Kodachrome was $8 for the day but we think it was worth it. We hiked a couple very pretty hikes including one with a large arch. Since we haven’t been to Arches yet this was a big deal to us! Our one thought on the park was we’d recommend seeing it before Bryce if possible. Bryce is so spectacular that comparisons are unfair and since we had hiked Bryce the day before it was fresh in our minds. Kodachrome is also beautiful just in a different way.
Also, there is absolutely 0 cell signal in the park or anywhere near it. So keep that in mind if you are planning to camp there.
In today’s video, we’re spending our last few days around St. George hanging out with Steve’s parents, hiking some more, eating some delicious local pie, and even checking out a cool local festival in between getting stocked up for our trip to Bryce Canyon. We loved the St. George area and we’ll be back!
