Pinecrest Lake, California

It might be coming up on *almost* two months since we took this little trip, but the early pregnancy fog is clearing enough so that I can finally sit down at the computer long enough to share our photos :-) Pinecrest Lake was actually the destination for our first camping trip of the year, but in mid-May it was SNOWED out and so we changed locations last minute. The next availability wasn't until September - this place is popular for a reason.

There had been a lot of wildfires in the weeks prior to our trip and so most of the three hour drive to this pretty lake in Sonora country was smoggy. In fact, the day we arrived, you couldn't even see the other side of the lake and the smell of smoke was pretty heavy in the air. For whatever bizarre reason, I actually like that smell so for me it wasn't that off putting.

In terms of the campsites we've been to, this one (also state run) was by far the busiest and most noisy. Cars were hooning by our site until late at night, lots of people walking by at all hours however the pretty (and huge) site made up for it. The kids loved playing in the big old trees and it was only a short walk to the lake.

I'm a little sad there will be no more camping trips this year, but it was certainly a lovely place for our final one of the season with some of our favourite people :-)
