Our first night back on the road was spent at Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. When we arrived it was a sunny 82 degrees. Normally I would complain that it was too hot, but a delightful westerly breeze that went right through the motorhome made it just right.
Here’s the lake as seen by this Google Earth view. The resort does not have any pull-thru spaces and since we were only spending one night I really did not want to have to unhook the Bronco. Since we didn’t need power, water or sewer hookups, instead of parking in a regular space, I elected to park in the tenting area. Being more than 1/4 mile away from the other campers made it delightfully peaceful since there were no tenters in this area.
Being so close to the lake and so peaceful, when I went to bed I enjoyed a wonderful crickets and bullfrogs concert playing natures symphony!
Located about 110 northwest of Mary’s home and about 25 miles north of Sacramento, it’s a convenient stopping place for us. Today we’ll continue heading north. Our planned destination is Redding, California.
