Rving a month with Zohar

As we had Zohar only for a month we tried to show her a variety of things along our trailer trip, it started in LA where we spent 5 days visiting Universal Studios ,Disneyland, and some beaches around L.A.

Now it was time to pull the 5W and the truck from the winter storage in Palmdale.

The rig was parked at Fred's property and he kindly took care of it during the winter, the batteries were charged, the truck was started and all worked just fines as though we just left it.

We went shopping ,eating and after 2 days were ready to move.

Our next destination was to visit Steve and Deb in Spring Valley ,people we meet at the end of our 2015 trip , they live in a beautiful cabin close to the sky....and it was a tough climb.

The next stop was in Bakersfield from there we did some side trips with the tow , to beautiful Kern Valley and to Codfish Ghost town,

For Zohar it is the first visit to the US, so everything is new and very very big...

Last year we hooked up with Sam & Chris , a great couple from Oregon, during the winter we stayed in touch and arranged a meeting in Visalia CA with our grandchildren, their Luke 12 years old and our Zohar the same age.

It was great to see these two getting along while none of them speaks the others language, Zohar did improve her English as time went by.

Zohar & Luck

Visalia was a home base for a week from where we took off to hike in Sequoia and Kings Canyon N.P, taking time to hike,swim,picnic in all the fantastic places in the parks.

At the end of the week Sam,Chris and Luke had to go home and we continued to Pinnacle N.P to give Zohar another experience of camping, the park is isolated and gave her the feeling of camping in the nature, we had deer coming close to us, lots of birds,chipmonks and squirrels.

There are few beautiful hike we took to great vistas and caves.

Zohar is our 3rd granddaughter joining us for a month in the summer, she is a fun girl, always in a good mood and helped grandma in the kitchen and was a part of the team, we are sure that this month enriched her in ways and leave good memories for a long time.

A month flew fast and tomorrow we will visit Carol in Palmdale on her birthday and then head to LA where Zohar will catch a direct flight back home.

She enjoyed the trip and we certainly enjoyed her.
