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.


  1. I'm so pleased to see you guys posting again! I stumbled across your blog and was thrilled to see another Lance Owner posting about their adventures around Northern California. Our blog is about a year out of date but here's the link: We've already added a few of the places you've posted about to our camping "To-Do" list :-) Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Thanks! Nice to hear from another Lance owner that blogs too. Glad to be of help with the " To-Do" list. It's always fun finding new places to travel. I follow the Lance Forum, for their helpful info on Lances. Hope to see you around one day!

  3. Thanks for checking in to my blog. I appreciate it when people comment--it is reassuring, don't you agree.

    I don't think we'll be looking into a Lance anytime soon, as you suggested in your comment. Although there are times I chafe at not having space, I'm actually content with the size. Are you full-timing? I wasn't clear on that. But happy travels in your Lance. I know they are good trailers...and perhaps down the road a year or so, we might consider going for a bit more room.
