It is hard to believe we have been on the road for thirty days and we are beginning month two of our road trip. The time has flown by incredibly fast. We have been fortunate with the weather. Although it rains almost daily its after the days activities. We wonder if this normal for this part of the country – Thunder, lighting and rain every evening.
Ron found this great place called Sinks Canyon State Campground. The only problem was that the sites at the campground could not house anything bigger
This is a tunnel on the way.
adjacent to Sinks and were fortunate enough to get a site with a view for $7.50 per night. Our dream site would have been on the rushing river but our RV was too big to fit. Over the last few trips we have come to realize that our MH is too big. We would have done better with something much smaller especially since we like to stay in remote areas. Live and learn I guess.
After settling in we decided to take a ride down to the sinks area where the river flows under the mountain then disappears then comes out the other side. The area is absolutely beautiful and the rushing water spectacular. The walk down to the sink was rugged and rocky but worth the visit.
While at the Sink we met a family from Michigan who had a long-haired dachshund named Ginger. She was adorable and her and Jewel made fast friends.We then went to the Rise where the water comes up out of the sink. There are tons of trout in the area and they are happy to be fed. There is a ban on fishing at the rise.
Back at the MH we planned our next days activities while it rained and thundered.
