Thursday, June 2 - Qiail Trails Valley RV Park, Paradise, CA - 198.8 miles - 8474.8 for the trip
When at the Yosemite Pines campground, a family of Acorn Woodpeckers, at least that's what they look like according to my iBird Plus App, lived in a tree next to our site. We saw both parents, assumed there were youngsters in the hole in the tree, but never saw them. The parents would take turns getting & delivering food, and chipping away at the insides of the hole in the tree, making more room. They do make a lot of noise, although they quieted down at night.
An Acorn Woodpecker, I Think - If Not, Let Me Know!
By the way, Yosemite Pines rates high on my campground lists. Nothing fancy, but everything you need, good WiFi, clean bathrooms & large, hot showers, stuff to do such as panning for gold, quiet, and relaxing. It was a bit cold at 38°F this morning, but I don't believe that was their fault!
We headed out to the Fresno area, staying at the Quail Trails Village RV Park, Site 19. It was a fairly nice drive up CA 120, CA 49, and CA 99 although a couple of sections near the larger cities were a bit busy. I don't enjoy hauling the trailer on 6 lanes of freeway! We followed a truck pulling a Scamp for about 30 miles, and waved to each other as we parted.
Don & Anne went into Fresno to see a new family member (I don't remember if it is a nephew or niece) & I'm kicking back here at the campsite getting in a little reading.
Since we have a very slow Verizon only connection, I probably won't be able to post the Lakeshore Images pages. The only additional photos for today are more of the woodpecker.
