Monday and Tuesday, June 6, 7, 2022 Usal CA.
I met Marty on the road and we took off up highway 101 north. It took a bit over 2 hours of driving to get to Usal State park. We turned off 101 onto highway 1 that headed over to the Pacific ocean where Usal is located. We turned off highway 1 onto a whindy narrow dirt road with lots of mud puddles in it. It just rained the day before so things were pretty wet still.
I’m not sure how many miles of dirt road in there was but it was slow going and not that many miles.
Fortunately we didn’t meet anyone on the road coming out as the road is real narrow and difficult to get around a car coming the other way.
Big mud puddles
From there I took Marty and showed him the different places to camp and we picked this one as it had the most sun. Most of the camp sites off from the ocean had a lot of tree cover with minimal sunshine, but were all very nice.
We made camp which is mostly just opening the doors and putting out a chair.
That was the first day.
We woke up here and pretty much spent most of the day here just relaxing and taking it easy and shooting the bull about old times. I’ve camped with Marty for many years so we have lots of bull to shoot.
Checking for crawdads
This bridge was right near our camp spot so I walked out on it and dropped the can of fish into the water. The purpose was to see if any crawfish came to eat the fish. If so, I’d put out the crawdad traps I carry and we’d have some good eats.
I went back to camp and shoot the bull some more.
Up the trail
And then back to camp to sit around until it got dark.
