Lake Success, CA our last stop this season

Still trying to attempt visiting Sequoia National park, we found an Army Corps of Engineers campground on Lake Success. 20181203_100702.jpg
The area was pretty much on the other side of Mount Whitney. At this point we were directly across from Alabama Hills, where we boondocked a couple days before, just facing Mount Whitney from the West. The weather channel still mentioned road closures and heavy snow on the mountain range, especially toward Mammoth mountain. E44205C3E91A383AD08B53EFD2972814.jpg
We had to sit down and reevaluate our plans. As much as we wanted to push on, it was not a good idea doing that with our home on wheels. Besides that, we were not equipped with snow chains and a break buddy.
We were within reach of our final destination. Pushing on to San Francisco and reporting to college would complete our first journey, giving us peace of mind and stability with a steady place to set up our Winnebago. Yet, I was not ready to call it the end of our trip. E442C4D79E6C481DC6EF4489B3F6B216.jpg Once we started traveling and finding all these amazing places I was hungry to see and learn more. This was a difficult decision. We decided to drive towards San Francisco, take a little break and plan all the big trips into the now closed National parks once the weather gets milder.
We finished our first Journey, driving 3999 miles across the US, starting in South Carolina and finished it in Fairfield, CA.
With all our ducks in a row, getting Tony's classes and college schedule, enrolling Landon into K12 in CA and setting up all our medical appointments, we are ready to explore the State of California.
A new map has been created, using the festive color green for our Winter Journey, to keep track of our mileage log. A handful of amazing new places have been already picked to explore, that I will continue to share with you.
Season 2: the Winter Season has begun.
Happy Holidays!
