One way in and one way out

Alpine County has always been one of our favorite counties in California.  Home of Grover Hot Springs State Park and the historic town of Markleeville. We had some more camping time so we chose this area to stay – thinking maybe we could get into Grover Hot Springs if we got their early in the morning, so needed to find a place to stay and then check it out.

Tight turns and a bumper dent later we were staying!
After looking on the maps and using the ap Allstays we chose the Forest Service campground Markleeville located on Markleeville Creek, in the shade of Jeffrey pines and cottonwood trees. I didn’t really read that it only took up to 24 foot trailers. What’s an extra foot anyway? It does matter in some places – not all – in this case we acquired a nice little dent via a beautiful granite rock. It was a beautiful spot and we weren’t going to leave for awhile. The road was steep and narrow and not possible for two cars at all.

A perfect spot of a couple of nights right by the creek.

So noted! We so much wanted to go and play with the cows behind this sign.
