Jan 12, 2019 - Caught in a Snowy Blizzard! (Snow geese that is!)

Today we visited the Colusa and Sacramento National Wildlife Refuges. We had stopped here years ago and I remembered being amazed at the numbers of waterfowl. I was not disappointed. We saw thousands if not millions of snow geese. Greater White-fronted geese, and so many ducks were everywhere. And where there are a lot of waterfowl, there were a lot of hawks. We even saw a few Peregrine Falcons and a Great-horned owl. Watching and listening to thousands of Snow geese on a pond, then silence till you hear millions (times two) wingbeats as...

Sep 6, 2014 - Dunnigan, CA

We left Klamath this morning intending to say along the lake in Nice where we had stayed the last time we were in the area but, we never found a place to stay and went all they way to Dunnigan, CA. A long day but we were happy to find a place for the night. We enjoyed the drive through the redwoods in the RV's. We saw some pretty country today but a lot of very dry areas due to the lack of rain. We did find a fresh vegetable market along the way and stopped to shop. We got a wonderful cantalope but the other stuff we picked up was not so good.

Woke up to a beautiful morning another shorts day for moi. We headed off to the Shasta Lake Dam. Shasta Lake is the largest lake in California, and as is true with almost all is man made.

Mar 7, 2010 - Phoenix, OR To Dunnigan, CA

We left our campsite in Phoenix, Oregon about 8:30 am. (a little late leaving as I was visiting with a couple from....Coquitlam, BC....who coincidentally live a few blocks from Shell, Sean and the kids). The trip started out almost immediately heading up the Siskiyou Summit which is the highest pass on Interstate 5, at 4310 feet (1310 m). Although it is about 1000 ft. shorter than our Coquihalla Summit, the climb is basically straight up the side of the mountains. A steady climb but our truck hauled the trailer with no problems at all, we...

Jun 4, 2009 - Define Resort?

Whatever happened to “under promise and over deliver?” Well, this small park in the middle of nowhere did have good power, large sites, and fragrant eucalyptus trees. Charlie wasn’t inspired by the cowpatch nine-hole course though, and “resort” was an overstatement! It was fine for an overnight stay, and we headed out early the next morning.

Aug 6, 2008 - Almost Home

Dunnigan, California - August 6 We made our last stop at the “Campers Inn” in Dunnigan, California. We will be home on Thursday August 7th. Friday it is back to the usual routine although we’re not sure what that will be yet. It will not be the usual for Bill as he will not have to get up at 4:00 a.m. and go to work. Isn’t retirement wonderful?
