Our second destination was the Forest Service campground at Silver Lake, on the June Lake Loop. We've been going to June Lake for over 20 years, but have always stayed at Oh Ridge Campground overlooking June Lake. We decided to try some place different this time.

This trip was a little different from others in that we had no hookups the whole time - and didn't bring the DirecTV receiver for when we were using the generator. We were able to pick up one radio station at Rock Creek and none at Silver Lake, so for 10 days we heard very little news from the outside world. It was rather pleasant. We each had books to read, and while Don fished I either read or worked on my cross stitch. We realized our trailer batteries need to be replaced - he would run the generator for a couple hours, and then 2-3 hours later the indicator light showed "empty' again. One of the batteries is 3 years old; the other is 4 - so it's definitely time to get them replaced.
We don't have any trips planned for a while. The next one will be towards the end of October when we go with some friends out to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
