Pacific Crest Trail Map

Second day of driving

Goose Lake State Park is a nice, clean, and well maintained campground. The moon was very bright and I could see it through my new shelter. I watched a herd of deer with their babies while I ate breakfast just a stones throw away. On the road by 8:30am. Had lunch in Reno - staying on Hwy 395 bypasses the downtown casino area.

By 4pm I was getting tired of driving and started looking for a campsite. I didn't realize how few and far between they are. I finally found one on Jane Lake, sheesh, they charge $ 23 a night. And showers are extra. Many people in the campground appear to be fisher people and look to be here for the week. Brings back memories of our vacations in our motorhome, long since replaced by a 5th wheel. And here I am in my little tent happy as a clam.Tomorrow I roll into Mammoth Lakes and then up to Red's Meadows to drop off the food bin. Check in, take a much needed shower, and pack my backpack.

That's about it - just a long drive, although the scenery was great, especially coming off the pass, rounding the corner and seeing the jaw dropping view of Mono lake!
