Offroading Adventure Pt 2
Last we left you, we had entered into Deep Creek. Well...keesh decided this was a perfect place to strip down and take a dip. Caution, cut photos contain men in their underwear. Adventures ensue.

Cheese it! It's the Ranger!

Seriously though, the Ranger talked to us not so much about Chris' public nudity (although that's why he stopped us), but because apparently we had parked on an ancient Indian burial ground/archaeological dig site. Um..Wow. There was NO signage or indication that we were parking on arrowheads and the like, especially because with the amount of discarded cigarette butts, underwear, toilet paper, and Doritos bags, TO ME, does not seem like "sacred ground". However, we were let off with a warning and the Ranger was kind enough to give us some passes to the park/forest (which we didn't have) and forgave us since there was no indication of such and the archaeologists didn't mark their dig site. Hurr...large offroading vehicles are crushin ur culture!

It doesn't show so much but beyond that patch of thistle, its a straight drop down. The rest of it is the other side of the canyon.

Then we decided to go to a place called "Bacon Flats" and then venture forth towards "The Devil's Hole". Which.. of course is fairly suggestive on its own.

A pretty voyeuristic shot of mine

We all got almost naked and took a swim in the vacant creek. We found a discarded frisbee and played until a family with some very small children came by for some fishing and spotted us. I covered my shame as best I could with the frisbee...totally ineffective. I also had to pee on a beaver dam. Talk about roughing it D:

I have to say it was the most relaxing swim I've had in a really long time. I'm really connected with water, and I'm glad I had this experience especailly since the last time I was in "natural" water was at Venice Beach last summer, even if my bra was full of silt, fool's gold and tiny pinecones by the end of it all.

We dined on Elk jerky and Honeysuckle on the way, saving snakes as we saw them, contemplating stealing Yucca blossoms to roast, all around enjoying the world around us. The great thing about California is that there's nothing for miles around. You can feel like you're the only people in the world. I don't know if I could ever trade this for anything.

At the end of it all we passed Lake Arrowhead on the way to get some eats. All in all, a great day.

I love where I live. I can't express how much. Viva California!

Beautiful photos!!! =D I'm sure that was a nice day indeed! I would give anything to spend a couple of days over there; I want to feel that "Only-people-in-the-world" sensation ...

Probably I could do the same thing here if we consider that's pretty similar, anyway I would need a jeep for those things, not a Ford Escort! :P XD The big problem is that here there're a lot of fields and estates: it's better not pass through them if you don't want to see an angry farmer with his pitchfork! XD

... and the nice thing I can see in your photos is that there're a lot of creeks and streams over there; here there's nothing like that because it's too damned dry! :P

I wish to have enough money to come and visit California someday!

Those poor beavers!

Its always nice to look at photos of California I've yet to see myself. There's always so much to see. The only place I've gone to recently was Santa Cruz Island during a field trip with my son's 5th grade class. The boat ride alone was fun enough with a few of the kids getting nauseated and horking up their lunch over the side of the boat. :P

My kid loved the boatride himself and we saw lotsa wonderful sealife such as sea lions and hundreds of dolphins leaping through the waves. I'm going to take my son back again as he loved the boat trip and the island and watching the island foxes. Hehe.

Hell, come to Idaho, we got all that and like 1/30 of the people. ;)

Whoah, I think I know that Krizno.

That sounds like a wonderful time!

LOL, "Mummy, why is that man in his underwear?" is probably what the little kid was thinking/saying. CX

Man, why does the wooded fuzz have to ruin my bonding with nature.....

Fun times for sure. :P
