The lake.

May 10 we left Pahrump towards Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. We stopped about half way in a small town named Boron. Small is the key word. It’s like 5 buildings at an exit on the interstate.

About an hour before stopping the wind gusts was making it difficult to drive. I was glad to get to the campground. That night I thought we were going to get to see the Wizard of Oz. I kept waiting for the tornado to pick us up.

It was still gusting when we left Tuesday morning for Three Rivers, California. But once we turned north on Highway 99 it was much better.

But I know now have the pioneers felt. When we got to the west side of the mountains, just past a small town named Tehachapi, the scenery dramatically changed. We went from the same desert scenery to lush pastures. Green grass, cows grazing, beautiful rolling mountains. That quickly turned to orange orchards, grape vines, nut trees. Really pretty.

We are in a campground about 4 miles from Kaweah Lake. I don’t think we will have time to do any fishing but is sure looks like there could be some in there. Maybe at out next stop.

Tomorrow we drive through the parks.
