Lake Tahoe, California - July 4, 2010

HAPPY 4TH of JULY, EVERYONE!

We are still in South Lake Tahoe, California.  This is one BIG RV park, nearly 500 spaces and almost all of them are filled.  Needless to say that there are lots of kids, dogs, bikes, BBQ smoke smells and happy energy all over the place.  The people across from us brought 13 bikes.  There was even a scheduled bike ride around the park.

There are scheduled activities for park participants each day.  Last night we attended a retro "hippies" music show put on by the Max Yasgur's Farm group (Max Yasgur was the person who rented his farm to the people who put on the Woodstock Music Festival in 1969 in New York). The group (dressed in tie dye clothes) was actually quite good, and we even danced to "Peaceful Easy Feeling." 

We expect that the park will clear out tomorrow and we will be one of the few that are left.  (We are looking forward again waking up to the birds instead of the dogs.)

Empty park before all the people arrived.

We are biking a lot (5 to 12 miles), taking two or three walks around the park each day (over a mile just to walk around the park) and Jerry is grilling great food every night.  We thought we'd be here for three weeks, but we lost track of time.  We have only one more week left here.  Below are pictures we took when we biked to the lake earlier this week.
