Thurs. 07.19.07 – This afternoon Mom, Margaret & Billy Gubbins, Scruffy and I went on a small hike up the Rock Creek trail. The wildflowers were out, Rock Creek was full of water (unlike the streams and creeks at Yosemite and Sequoia National parks), the day was warm, and we went to lunch at Tom’s Place afterwards.

Hotel Camping or a Mini-Summer Vacation

From very early Tues 7/17/07 in the morning (attempt to drive north without driving through LA traffic) to very late Thurs 7/19/07 in the evening, I will be on a Road Trip / Hotel Camping / Mini-Summer Vacation with some friends from Ireland.
Billy & Margaret want to see a National Park, so we shall see two. I want to show them the Eastern Sierra, as it is the best part. They only want to be gone for 2 nights, thus the Whirlwind!
Somehow, we, including Scruffy McDoglet, will drive from OC/LA to Sequoia National park to visit General Sherman, Yosemite, drive over the Pacific Crest via Tuolumne Meadows, go to Bishop, go to Mammoth, go to the Mt. Whitney Portal and make it back to LA/OC again by Thursday evening.
Whew! I am already tired… Moblogged photos below.
