Janet, Lynn and I will be at Wrights begining 8/29 and thru 9/3. Wright's reservation requirement ends Labor Day. I doubt you will find any available campsites before LD but after that it is first come first serve up to the first snowfall. We can stay longer if we know you might come up. We canoed that lake for 20 years and we still have the canoe. However, my hip replacement Dr. says no. I am cleaning it up now in case our daughter and family want to carry it up. We can't with a convertible and it would be really wierd looking on top of the Trade Wind. Our son has returned from Kuwait/Iraq and we may go back up in Sept too with him. Wrights is at 7000' for your Dad's consideration. Caples and all the other lakes mentioned in this thread we have visited and recommend. No one mentioned Convict Lake south of Bridgeport.

Enjoy,
Neil and Lynn.

how about a full moon paddle thursday nite?? Then a campfire with a touch of wine!
OOoo I would like nothing better! Because of work, Jwolf and I won't be able to make it to the rally until Saturday but can definitely do a paddle then and certainly sin with Zin, or hurrah with Syrah before, during, or after!

Definitely check out the North Shore. It's boondocking at it's finest! Just don't park to close to the water or you may sink in the mud. What may appear to be dry sand on top can cover up wet mud underneath. Stick with existing tire tracks. I had a friend get stuck recently with their 4x4 and 32' 5th wheel. I cost them $500 to get towed...ouch!

Had a great time in the mountains, thanks to all the good advice from this thread! We lucked out and got the only site we could have possibly fit into at Caples, and spent the weekend exploring, kayaking, and fishing at beautiful and peaceful Woods Lake, and Lower Blue Lake. Unfortunately, both have fabulous campgrounds way too small for our trailer to squeeze into, but they were perfect for day trips.
Terry's dad enjoyed every minute, and the altitude didn't seem to bother any of us. Much fun had by all.
Neil and Lynn, we'd love to meet you at Wright's, if only we didn't have to be other places that weekend. Should be gorgeous. Have fun!
Janet

Nice pics Janet! I forgot what a pretty spot that was. Looks like you're wedged in the campsite nicely. Is that Terry's backing prowess at work?

Indeed it is. He earned many "nagitator" points with that one!

Michelle, those granite boulders and Jeffrey Pines were way beyond me, in spite of all your patient tutoring!

Thanks, Jim. We're looking forward to a trip to the Eastern Sierras and Mammoth area late fall/early spring. We'll definitely check out Mammoth Lakes and vicinity.
Niel and Lynn, Love love "FreshAir"! Can't believe it wasn't taken! Ah you creative types.
Janet

Hmmm.... Jeffrey Pines! What a sweet smell!! Thanks for the pics from such a great location (more exclamation points ruled out-of-order!).

Hi Sierra Lakes

Just found this thread.
Did I see a white Hobie?
West of Alpine, south of Hwy 4 are Union and Spicer Reservoirs, great for kayaking also. Another interesting lake is Cherry Lake accessed from Touolumne, CA. Big lake with an island. No ski boats or PWC. And it has a nice camp ground. It does take a while to get to though.
Went to Fallen Leaf Lake once in August, lots of wind at that time. Will take the amas and sail with me next time and get the Adventure Island up to speed. Have pictures of the trip in my Member's photos.
Travel on.
