Our Weekend in Inyo National Forest


This past weekend we headed to Inyo forest for a camping trip. It's about a five hour drive from the Bay Area, so it was a bit far but definitely worth the long drive. We feel so so so extremely lucky to have the opportunity to live in California. It's been such an amazing experience.

We camped at East Fork campground, It was huge! There is over 100 different sites to pick from. Our campsite (#51) was really secluded and close to the (clean) bathrooms so that's always a plus. 

The best part about our weekend was that it was a dog friendly campground and the trail that we hiked was also dog friendly, which is unheard of in California! Charlie was so excited to go hiking and spend the weekend outdoors with us.

Of course we had lots of yummy camping food all weekend... Breakfast burritos, cinnamon rolls, spicy brats, smores, filet mignon, pasta salad, and my favorite.. Brie fondue with warm french baguette.

The campsite is nowhere near any kind of civilization so it was perfect for star gazing. We even got to see 3 shooting stars! It was so beautiful.

Saturday morning we woke up early and hiked the Little Lakes Valley Trail. The trail was 10 miles with an elevation of 10,000 feet so it was quite the workout!

We passed by four different lakes on the hike, each one more beautiful than the last. 

The water was FREEZING. Allen jumped in and swam around for a bit... By himself, it was way too cold for me.

The hike was breathtaking, we felt like we were in a movie... And being at such a high elevation literally takes your breath away ha!

After the long hike we rewarded ourselves with lots of hippie juice and a nice long nap in the tent.
