From a toddler and into his teen years, Mike’s parents and grandparents would take him and his brother camping in the Eastern Sierra’s. They always had a blast and made so many amazing memories, that Mike is making sure his family can experience the same. So, this summer we took the boys ( along with Mike’s parents, his brother and his family ) and we headed up to the mountains. If you have ever been to the Eastern Sierra’s, you know how absolutely beautiful and breathtaking the views are. Not only are there spectacular camp grounds, it’s also nestled within historic California. Between staying in the town of Bridgeport ( which was once the capital of California) to visiting the best preserved Ghost town in the country, Bodie, this was sure to be one for the books. One of the best parts? There was no Wifi or phone service in our camp site and it felt so good to unplugged for a bit. The kids learned, played, hiked, swam in the lake and we even had a chance to venture over to Nevada for a day. I love history so this was totally my jam…
Here are a few highlights from this super fun trip. Oh and if any of you want some great Sierra camping tips with kids, let me know and I’ll write a post sharing what we do!
Our first stop was at the cute little breakfast spot called Stoken Donuts. Super sweet people, yummy biscuits and gravy with tasty donuts too!
Hiking to Horseshoe falls
Upper Twin lake was absolutely freezing but the kids did not care one bit!
One of my absolute favorite places in the country, Bodie California.
We also made a stop into June lake and I definitely want to stay here one of these years. The people are so kind and not to mention it’s gorgeous !
The kids loved every single second of this trip which made us very happy parents. I can’t wait to this trip again!
