It’s been a while since my last post, I know and I’m sorry. We’ve been traveling a lot trying to find a spot to land and I haven’t quite had a chance to catch my breath.
Our cat Jackson is quite the traveler. He sits calmly in his kennel until we get to a campsite where we can let him out. He always returns before it’s time to leave and loves to explore the different areas.
Seeing trees again after being in the Nevada desert was such a treat. These trees stretch up as far as the eye can see and are straight as an arrow. The smell in the air of damp mulch and sweet pine is an aroma that I’ll never forget.
The first forest that we visited was the Plumas national forest. It was beautiful on the outside but showed lack of care on the inside. We came across some perfect campsites that were littered with trash. I’m not talking about just a few beer bottles and leftover trash laying around. I mean, these were dump sites that looked like mini landfills. You can see my video below.
The most exciting thing we did while we were here was build a fire pit and cook a pizza over the campfire. My favorite part –We didn’t have to pay an arm and a leg for bundles of wood because we found plenty of dead stuff in the forest and there were no signs saying you couldn’t gather wood! Yay! My daughter wanted to clean up the place a bit so she did that. I can’t say it made a difference because she moved everything to one side but it did actually look a whole lot better by the time we left.
My fortune cookie said now is a good time to explore, and who am I to get in the way of the old wise fortune cookie teller so I guess I will continue to do just that! 🙂
