What a difference a year makes.

We camped at Barrett Cove Campground in April 2022 during the height of the California drought. Now, after weeks of rain this year, Lake McClure shows the result of all that water . . .

We arrived on Monday afternoon after a short 20-mile drive from Mariposa. Also, we’re staying in the same campsite as last year . . .

We’re only here for a few days so we’re doing as much hiking as possible. The area is gorgeous. Plus, as far as we can tell, there’s only one other camper in the entire park!

This was our “shakedown” camping before we begin our long summer trip East in a month.

It was a good thing we did this. Besides the great views and hikes, we also found several things that needed attention (aka repairing).
