Too often Hubby and I have zipped over the Sonora Pass on California route 108. We knew this beautiful area deserved more of our attention but we hadn't gotten around to exploring. Last month we tried to rectify our error and spent three nights camping near Kennedy Meadows.
This is the gateway for hikers into the Emigrant Wilderness and a haven for those who enjoy fishing and majestic scenery. For those who chose not to camp, the resort offers cabins and a restaurant. You must plan ahead, though, as the resort already has reservations for most of next summer!
Our visit in early autumn found the Stanislaus River running low. It was obvious, though, that at other times there is a lot of water.
The meadow grasses had turned brown. We hope to go back in the spring to see it clothed in green.
Fishermen were taking advantage of the last few weeks of fishing season.
As the day comes to an end the rock formations are highlighted by the setting sun.
See other worlds at That's My World Tuesday, hosted for us by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia.
