My husband and I decided to head to Lake Berryessa to check on the lake's water level and possibly do some hiking. We had camped here the year before when the lake was very low. So naturally, curiosity got the best of us after all the rain this past winter. The weather forecast for that weekend was cloudy with possible sprinkles.

Luckily for us, the weather did provide a couple of hours of blue sky.

Since we felt lazy, we didn't hike the Smittle Creek trail as we had done on last year's visit to the lake. Instead, we hiked around Spanish Flats campground's section of overgrown old campsites situated across from where we were camped. We hiked up to the water tower and then out to the point.

Then we headed back to our RV. My husband took a nap while I watched the water-skiers in wetsuits enjoy an afternoon on the lake.

It was wonderful to see numerous families out enjoying the campground and trying to fish along the banks of the lake.
