What is it?
Where is it?
And why did we go there!
What is it?
Most people have never even heard of The Carrizo Plain.
We read a lot and we watch a lot of travel, camping and adventure YouTube videos, which often (really often) give us ideas of where to go!
So, who of you have heard of The Carrizo Plain?
It is in California.
It is 45 miles long and 10 miles wide.
Totals 250,000 acres.
Thanks Mr. Retired President Bill Clinton who designated this area as a national monument in 2001.
Because only 4% of California’s native grasslands remain.
Thank you Bill!
The Carrizo Plain has two primitive campgrounds ~ KCL & Selby.
We camped at KCL ~ join us!
Someone was a little miffed that she was not included in our Top 5 Adventures!
She was barely even mentioned…
So she wanted to share her Top 5 Adventures!
She too, had a hard time narrowing it down…
So yeah, this is always fun!
And to be tagged in a third generation ~ very cool.
Super hard to narrow our top 5 adventures down, but hey, we did it!
And now for the human version of the same trip!
A super fun little stop in Lone Pine!
Another great campground on California’s 395!
And some fish!
I am sure this is the most popular hike in The Alabama Hills!
And Mobius Arch the most photographed rock formation in the area.
And the fact that the trailhead was walking distance from our campsite?
Even more easy.
Only one other camper.
A view of the Sierras.
And a creek.
