|our site at Park of the Sierras|
We are staying at the Escapees (SKP) Park in Coarsegold, CA., Park of the Sierras. It is 26 miles from the south entrance of Yosemite National Park. We are staying for a weekly rate of $96.00. WOW! Can't beat that unless you are boondocking somewhere. The SKP park is beautiful...rustic, natural, not as landscaped as the last Escapees Park in Aguanga...very hilly, but we didn't have any trouble getting into our site. It's beautiful here--spring is in full swing, all the trees are fresh with new leaves, the honeysuckle is in full bloom and it is all over the park. The trees are mature and huge. There are a ton of beautiful birds here as well. I might be doing some bird watching!
We're looking forward to spending some time here. We haven't had a chance to explore the town of Coarsegold, yet, but it looks interesting from a trip we took to the grocery store....next two days we will be checking out literature, doing research about the park, and deciding what plans to make.

That's it for today...weather is supposed to be great this week...no rain, temps gradually climbing from the seventies to the high eighties. Perfect for hiking and exploring a great national park! See you tomorrow....
