Weekend Camping at Lemolo Lake

Well Amber says it is not really Camping, it is just 'Kinda Camping' because we camp in our Motor home, ha ha It is the ONLY way I want to camp! Love the ease and love not sleeping on a cot! We did plenty of that and I guess I sound old but I LOVE IT!! :) Just in case you have never heard of Lemolo Lake, it is just about 15-20 minutes north of Diamond Lake. It is a cold mountain lake but people do ski on it, in fact we have in the past!
So here is a view of our campsite. National Forest Service Campground so no hook-ups but you get a super clean place and it is usually very quiet. This trip we made the mistake of camping by the 'yellers' ya know the kind that sit on there rears and yell at the kids across the camp the entire time! GOOD GOLLY!

We of course had a few of these little guys come by for some nuts, man they really got gutsy and came in within inches of us. They can scamper away pretty quickly so I guess they are not to scared. Fun entertainment to watch them wait for you to throw a nut down. Sort of reminds me of Amber's little dog! hee hee She will sort of do a little tap dance if you are not giving her enough attention. Well this Chipmunk got up on the picnic table and sort of danced around to get us to throw more nuts, ha ha ha it sure worked!!

These wild iris's were everywhere, so cool that everyone didn't pick them. Ya know it is tempting but sure nice for everyone to see!


We walked down to the Lake, we were on the shore side so you could see it from the camp. BRRR that is some stinking cold water! Good for a quick dunk but that is about it. The kids were not even swimming so that tells you just how cold it really was :)
We stopped by Diamond Lake on the way home so I had to snap a photo.
I gotta run and get to work but I will post the rest of our trip tomorrow!

WOW! It looks like a wonderful place to go to. To bad the water was so cold. The wild flowers are so pretty. All of your photos are wonderful!

May moons ago , A month after I had Andy, we went to a wedding at Lemolo Falls. Hiking a half mile down with a new baby in a front pack was easy but never thought I would make it back up up up.....
And I had youth and slim on my side. Guess I wouldn't be able to do that these days....
But it was beautiful.

Beautiful pictures and I love to go camping. Well, I use to. LOL Been years, and I wouldn't be sleeping on a cot or ground anymore. I like my creature comforts in my old age. LOL

I will wait until it warms up a bit, my type of camping right now is the TENT thing...Oh well, better than not going at all. Besides with two little boys, they need to know what camping is really about. Trust me I am with you though...much would prefer the RV
