We've been having inordinate amounts of fun despite our being "stuck" here! There's just so much to see and do! For instance, a couple of days ago, we visited the Kern River - the drive along is spectacular as we wended our way towards Lake Isabella.
We stopped a couple of times and got to go... swimming! Here it was all snowing a few days ago, and now it's bathing suit weather heheh! There were two schoolbuses full of kids who just fawned over us and we were good girls and smiled a lot while they stroked our furs. Hard work, but some doggehs gotta do it!
The Kern River's cool, cause it has about as many rocks as there is water - seemingly endless amounts! And we're amenable to both!
Th'above pitchur is one of Ma's faves, what with Avalon's lips all loose and Sammie's ears all a kilter, with big ole goofy smile! Yes, we're happy girls!
Then we headed over Walker Pass, heading east towards Mohave. As we skirted Lake Isabella and worked our way in big winds up the pass, we spied colonies of Joshua Trees. Since Dad has (still) never seen J-Tree NP, he got out to check out these ancient relatives of the lily. Then we finally got to scramble in and around some truly ginormous rocks at Red Rock Canyon State Park - check it out here!
We are trippin' and lovin' this cool place. Mom didn't let us hang on the giant rocks for too long - thar's rattlers in there... But we did use our snooters to see if we couldn't spy a desert tortoise or two.
Then Mom serenaded us with our water bottle - we'd never seen THAT before! Have a pawesome weekend! We're outta here on Monday morning yippee!
