Sepia Scenes #4

15 Apr

Camping Memories of long ago (actually two summers ago, but feels old with sepia).  In order to reach Camp 4 1/2, take platform 9 3/4.  Just kidding. Nope that is not me on the photo.

Camp 4 1/2 is located along the Kings River. I would really love to give you the link for this cabin rental, but the forest service website is down currently. But if you’re still interested, just google camp 4 1/2 and it’s usually the first two searches on the google page.

In the  camp is a single cabin of two bedrooms but can sleep up to 12.  There is AC and running water with flush toilet, and gas range and refrigerator.  That is what we called “roughing” it.  It is located in the middle of nowhere.  From the Bay Area, we drove about 3.5 hours.  Across the cabin past the rough road is the Kings River, known to be a good fishing spot. 

I had the most fun when we camped here.  There was nobody around for miles, just the family and I.  We would wake up early to get an early dip before breakfast (photo 2 is the kids having their breakfast with cocoa) and would return to lie on the beach (yes there were beach areas along this long river). 

Thanks for viewing my family photo album. 

SEPIA SCENES comes to us weekly.  Go check it out.

    Now that’s my kind of camping. Love my hot water and flush toilets. Looks like a great place to make memories.

    I’d love to spend some vacation days in that camp.
    Nice surroundings and just the right mood for a family resort.

    We love to camp too but we do mostly do primitive campsites. This looks like a good time. Can’t wait for the summer to come.

    I am much more content to be ‘roughing it’ with AC and an inside shower. But the cabin is right for sleeping and eating, but never a distraction from the main event, the stunning natural beauty on display. Sleeping comfortably off the ground makes us ready to tackle the scenery in the morning!

    I’ll probably never have the chance to get out there, but it’s nice to know this stuff just in case.

    So who is that in the first photo?

    Spending time in the nature sounds like lots of fun and pretty educational for the kids 🙂

    I miss the California mountains! I’ve camped, backpacked in the Sequoias, as wells as, cycled on the highway/roads that meander through that mountain range.
    This sounds like a great cabin to rent. I will definitely google that name.

    The old sign is one we used to see around here many years ago so right away I’m taken back in time.
    Very nice tone of sepia!

    Sepia works perfectly on this campsite. I love the name! And that’s my kind of ‘roughing it’ with hot water and a flush toilet.

    So you are a late bloomer too? Well, then, welcome to the club 😉

    Beautiful camping pics. Camping is always a sepia memory for me. Always wonderfully the same, despite the various adventures.

    Looks like a great place to camp! Might as well been Hagrid’s place ;). Sepia adds another precious touch to your family album. Have a great weekend :).
