We woke up in the National Forest in northwest California. We drive down the road and decided to explore yet another forest road in this area, since it seemed like a great place to find campsites and quiet forest getaways. We were right. We found a great FS road campsite with flat ground, grass, tall trees for shade but scattered to allow sunshine too. After some exploration there was even water not far.
The water was a little tricky to get to but eventually we found a decent access. It was pretty overgrown, quite buggy, but enough to allow us to filter some drinking water and even a quick bath (colder than I expected though!).
