Snowflower Thousand Trails in California
Snowflower Thousand Trails is a nice moutain campground. We have satellite and Verizon cell at the cliffs. The cliffs are like a parking lot campground with electric and water only. The other camping spots aren’t open until the late Spring.
The views at the park were worth the parking lot camping. The snow was beginning to melt so the stream was filled with water. The ski lodge looks clean and inviting. We played foosball, pool & ping pong. Staying active during retirement is important to us.
Kevin and I drove into Truckee, CA to have breakfast and visit Cabela’s for some fishing equipment. Cabela’s is similar to Bass Pro Shop. The breakfast place we chose was called Wagon Trail Coffee Shop. The decor was cute. The service great. The breakfast & coffee were good but it was too pricey.
Also, we went walking everyday. The lake is beautiful. I hope thousand trails stocks it with trout soon. An osprey flew over the water looking for food.
We did some geocaching in the area. One geocache was in a ammo can. I placed a Sarge Travel Bug in it. I hope this travel bug goes far.
This Red-breasted Nuthatch was hanging outside a shed when we were on our walk. At first, I thought he was a White-breasted Nuthatch but the black stripe on the side of his head and the red on his breast made him easier to identify. This White-headed Woodpecker was making noise near our campsite. Once we saw his white head he was easy to idenify.
Snowflower Thousand Trails is a campground worth a second visit for us. The good view, birds, small lake & lots of trees are good for us.
