About a week after returning from the Parkfield Blue Grass Festival, we took off on a weeklong camping trip to Bishop, California, for the 50th annual Mule Days Festival that took place over the Memorial Day weekend. This was another Greater Los Angeles Airstream Club gathering and it was a lot of fun! The festival featured mule and donkey events of all kinds and the scenery was gorgeous.
We like music, all kinds of music, and recently, we attended the famous Parkfield Bluegrass Festival with members of the Greater Los Angeles Airstream Club. We camped at the V6 Ranch, listened to some great music, stepped on the San Andreas Fault and took a side trip to a nearby car and military museum.
We’ve been so busy that we haven’t posted about the last 7 camping trips we’ve taken. Some trips were to familiar campgrounds (3) and others (4) were new to us. Here’s a quick summary by month: Red Rock Canyon State Park, Nov. 2018; Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton (new), Nov. 2018; Flying Flags RV Resort, Dec. 2018; Oasis Palms RV Resort (new), Feb. 2019; Refugio State Beach (new), March 2019; Anza Borrego State Park, March 2019; Chino Hills State Park (new).
That’s a lot to talk about! We’ll try to summarize each the best we can to keep this post reasonably short.
We’ve been very, very lazy about keeping this blog up to date with our travels. We haven’t posted since October of 2018 even though we’ve visited a number of campgrounds and celebrated and anniversary. Hopefully, we will catch up soon. As a first installment of catch up, here’s a post about the anniversary we celebrated last September.
My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary on September 4, 2018. It’s been a great 25 years and it’ll be fun seeing what the next 25 brings us. How she’s been able to stand me for so long still escapes me so I guess I’m just extremely lucky.
Our anniversary was about a week-long celebration consisting of eating, hiking and a trip to a famous, haunted hotel.
We wanted to get up to the forests and enjoy the spring flowers so we decided to go to Barton Flats since we’d not been there for a couple of years. We figured going there the middle of the week before Memorial Day weekend would be a good time. The drive up to Barton Flats is on state highway 38, which is scenic. When we arrived at the campground, there was just one other RV camper in our loop and a tent camper in another loop. It was good to be back in the San Bernardino National Forest and smell the wonderful pine trees! Continue reading “Welcome to Barton Flats!”
