Right now – July 26 2023

There has been very little smoke and there are no wildfires near here at this time. As this is a dry pine forest, this campground has far fewer mosquitoes (virtually none) than other areas of the valley. The campground is green and has been running smoothly with great guests who have virtually all expressed that they like it here. At first I thought it was because of the extreme quiet (when its totally quiet), but I later realized its because of the big tall, shade providing trees. There are so many things to do right now. One needs to deal with FOMO. When I am not hanging around the campground (ideally in a hammock) I choose to go to ecstatic dance events or open water swimming in one of the rivers or at Red Sands (nude) beach. I really enjoy just wandering around Baker Street at this time of year. There are the markets, Artwalks (next one is Saturday, August 5th) and best of all are the Marketfests, where they close the street and put live entertainment stage at either end. This years market festivals are Market Night July 28 2023, and the harvest Market Festival September 23 2023.
