Indian Grinding Rock State Historic Park (IGR) is located in the Sierra Nevada foothills 12 miles east of Jackson, CA. The park nestles in a little valley 2,400 feet above sea level with open meadows and large valley oaks that once provided the Native Americans of this area with an ample supply of acorns. There is a museum and Native American village here to tour. Several easyish nature trails provide views of the park and wildlife.

Bring wood.  Bring wine.  Bring galoshes.

Folks, I have to bail on this one. I have yet to resolve the auxiliary power issues in my van and, with no shore power, this is beginning to look like an uncomfortable and cold weekend. I will have to wait for the next GTG. I am going to relinquish my site today. Hopefully the remainder have a good time and I look forward to reports. I may sign up to go back to Indian Grinding Rock when things warm up a little.

Keep in touch there, WW.  I'm sure you could double up with someone.  

You'll be missed

Jeez, forecast calls for eight days of rain up there.  :o(

I won't hold it against you if y'all decide to bail out (pun intended).

I seem to always plan these Storm Campouts.
