Last night’s camp
We had a nice restful camp spot last night.
We get up and sit around the camp most of the morning before taking off for the days exploration.
We were headed down to this big meadow, called Squaw Valley. There’s a creek in this meadow called Squaw Queen’s Creek. We want to follow it back to the other creek we’ve been exploring to find the access points to the creek from the roads. There aren’t many access points.
We drove back out to Squaw Valley and followed the creek there . This road looked like it was a recent fire break as it was wide but mostly in good shape until we got to the end where it turned into a creek.
But before we got to the end, I spotted something red by the side of the road so stopped to check it out.
The road was supposed to go on through, but it stopped when it turned into a creek which might be passible when the creek dries up later.
We were in need of a camp spot for the night so we took a little side road near the end of the main road and found this spot.
Since we entered Squaw Valley this morning, the mosquitos have been few which has been real nice.
