Tuesday October 4, 2022 Last Chance Creek, Northern CA.
Posted two blogs today. The first one is below this one if you want to read in order.
Sitting around camp
That’s what we did, just sat around shooting the bull about old times and making plans to explore this area.
It would have been easy just sitting there all day, so I finally said we need to be on the road exploring by one. We make it by 12:30.
We were interested in the creek so we drove down any road we could find off the main road and explored, looking for camp spots and just looking around trying to check out the cheek.
Down this one
Dead end road
Tonight’s camp spot
We decided to go on back to the same place we’d camped and, well, camp.
It was only a few miles back up the road so we did that.
A walk along the creek
While Marty was fixing his fish for dinner I went for a walk down along the edge of the creek to have a look around.
The first part of the walk, there were lot’s of beaver dams backing up the water until I got to this one. It was about six feet high, but below it there were no more dams for awhile so there was less water.
We didn’t catch a single crawfish by our camp in the beaver pond last night. But this area below the last beaver dam is more what we were looking for to camp by to catch them. The water is only about a foot deep with lots of small rocks on it’s bottom.
Marty had camped up here years ago and said the place he camped was just full of the little critters, but he can’t remember just where that spot was.
We just have to find a camp spot by the creek that has these same conditions which we will try to find tomorrow during our exploring and continuing on up the road.
I gave Marty a report of my walk and he said his fish was cooked to perfection.
We are crossing into Nevada in a bit.
