We made it to Bishop at about 1:00 PM Sunday the 9th then headed west up to our campground "four jeffery" and were greeted with a 50 MPH headwind with snow ! This was only our 3rd trip out with our 23' Safari and I was a little nervous but the abient temp wasn't cold enough at 1:00 PM to make the road slipperey so we made it the 10 miles to our camp.
Sunday and Monday night it snowed, temps down to 25 degrees but I did my homework and had empty black and gray tanks and drained the fresh water as well as pumping all the water out of the plumbing. Tuesday night it cleared up and the rest of the week was perfect, great fishing, Chris and I both catching an Alpers lunker trout !
We had planned to head up to June lake on Sunday the 16th but were turned around just like you were, a severe weather alert, so we came home early and drove out to Vegas for e few days to get some sunny weather !
Heres a picture of Sunday after dropping the trailer while it snowed, then another pic when the sun came out ! It was worth waiting for the sun...
