Running the Highline (Taylorsville, Northern California) at Taylorsville, California, elevation 3,547 ft

October 7, 2016 to October 9, 2016
Did you ever wonder where the historic Western Pacific railroad tracks went from the Keddie Wye? The main line goes east over the Sierra but a branch line turns to the north. It is known as the Highline. It follows Indian Creek to the north. It passes by Crescent Mills and Lake Almanor.We're camping in Taylorsville, 5 miles east of the Highline tracks. Taylorsville has a great market with high quality meats, home-made hamburger, sandwiches, ice, and other grocery items. The Taylorsville campground is a half-mile east of town, along Indian Creek. There is patchy cell service in the campground (Verizon is the best). Bring your bike to ride into town!For those of you familiar with Hallsted Campground (TrainSpotting)-Taylorsville is about 17 miles to the north.No reservations needed. There's plenty of room. It's an open, grassy campground with nice tree cover and next to a creek. Creek is suitable for dog-splashing but not swimming. Sites are casual, not highly defined. No electric.…See More

Summerdale Campground near Yosemite at Summerdale Campground

September 23, 2016 to September 25, 2016
PLEASE NOTE: CAMPGROUND HAS NO MORE RESERVATIONS AVAILABLE  as of August 28.Not too far from Yosemite is the Summerdale Campground in the Sierra National Forest. Crowds should be gone, weather cooling. The campground features campsites surrounding a meadow at about 5,000'. Look at the pictures of the sites and the driveway lengths as you choose your campsites, not all will accommodate 2 busses. The campground is east of Merced, off Highway 41 in Fish Camp, about 188 miles from Sacramento and 166 miles from Livermore. This is not an organized event. You are on your own to figure it out and what to do, but below is useful information. The entrance to Yosemite is quite nearby.This is the link to the campground:Summerdale CampgroundThe Yosemite Sugar Pine Railroad is nearby and runs a steam engine excursion train.…See More
