Luckily, we camped off-site, next to a nice parkie and alongside a great swimming hole!
Quincy is the county seat of Plumas County, also the county of my birth home, the little town of Maybe. This trip we didn't have time to stop by Maybe, and Plumas Golden Retrievers, but definitely will be coming back to the area and hope to visit.
Spanish Creek was just a walk across our campground and had a fantastic swimming hole.
The above photo was actually a stop on the way home, at Donner Memorial State Park just outside of Truckee, CA. A favorite area for great trails and more swim time!
Of course, I had to find a stickie... and spend some quality snaggle time with stickie.
Below...back to our weekend in Quincy...mom and dad spent much time here...the High Sierra Music Festival, in its 20th year. They said that this event was crazier and more crowded than ever, yet a nice lineup of musicians.
Dad and friends are avid music recorders. You can barely see Dad there under his sun fortress of shades with recording gear and microphones.... Below is Darol Anger and The Republic of Strings on stage. Quite good!
Although I didn't go into the festival madness, I did have lots of big playtimes and shady spots to nap in our truck. Dad and I on our way back to camp...1am...late night...zzzzzz
Below is yesterday's swimming in Prosser Reservoir, in the Tahoe National Forest just outside of Truckee. Great spot!
Dad was off somewheres out there on his mountain bike.... He loves the Emigrant Trail out and back to Stampede Reservoir, about 22 miles of rolling terrain.
