Lake Almanor

We decided to make a stop at Lake Almanor where Austin worked one summer with some of his college buddies.  He had a lot of great stories about this place so we thought it would be a nice destination!

On our drive from Lake Tahoe to Lake Almanor we end up smack in the middle of the USA Cycling Amateur Road National Championships!  It’s a good thing we were not in a rush to get anywhere.

Lake Almanor was beautiful, we camped at the Rocky Point Campground right on the lake.

We enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

It was nice to relax and enjoy the cool breeze blowing off of the water.

Dogs at the lake!

There was a bird’s nest right by our campsite.  I’m not sure why mama bird decided to make a nest on the ground???

 Lake Almanor is a water lovers paradise, boating, fishing, jet skiing…….!  With temperatures in the 90’s Hugh couldn’t resist!  I even took an evening dip!

We even got a private lesson in reversing GP into a very narrow campsite. Luckily one of our neighbors at the campground was an expert so he gave us some really good tips.
