The Bug is Back

The camping bug is definitely back. We've skipped a couple months due to some medical issues, but now it is really time to get back out there.

We kept the November trip to San Clemente and the December trip to Doheney on the calendar, but we canceled the January trip to San Elijo and February return trip to San Clemente.

Sherry is going to a concert with her girl friends in January, so I'll take Andy and a friend or two out to the desert to play.

In February we're going to take a five day trip to Big Sur, about a half-hour from Monterey Bay in the central coast of California. We're staying in the Fernwood Resort campground, inside a grove of Redwood trees.

We'll use the "resort" as a base camp and explore nearby Pfeiffer Big Sur, Andrew Molera, and Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Parks, plus Pfeiffer Beach.

The State Parks says the area features "redwoods, conifers, oaks, sycamores, cottonwoods, maples, alders and willows - plus open meadows. Wildlife includes black-tail deer, gray squirrels, raccoons, skunks, and birds, such as water ouzels and belted kingfishers." Looks like a great extended trip.

Where in the desert?

I'm thinking Cottonwood Springs at Joshua Tree. It is a nice place and a short stretch to the George Patton Museum at Chiraco Summit.
