We just returned from our 4 day camping trip at the Kern River. Where we survived heats reaching 112 degrees (why do we subject ourselves to this?)!
We were able to see the Trail of 100 Giants, drink really good Vanilla Milkshakes and eat Turkey Patty Melts, and just wade in the “beach” drinking our beers. My daughter had a blast!
A bit sunburnt, but all was worth it!
I wanted to share with you a few pictures of our trip (and the magnitude of the trees) and some worthy links of good reading (while I get resituated at home).
Without further adieu I present:
Man vs. Debt: 5 Non-Personal Finance Blogs I read Religiously – Great inspirational links to read by!

Frugal Dad: Living off the Grid – I want to break my chains. What about you? Here’s a great post to help with those thoughts.
Why do we subject ourselves to Kern River Camping in such crazy temperatures? The view below… calming, quiet, picturesque views and the great “beach” that lays below it.

looks like a very calming atmosphere. the trees may scare me a bit, just a tad:-)
Can you see my 9yr old standing next to that tree?
The picture doesn’t do justice on describing the massiveness of these trees! It really was very beautiful and tranquil. I am glad that we took the time to go. I’ve been Kern River camping 3 years (unlike my husbands 30+ yrs camping here) and we didn’t know the trail existed. Thanks to the internet I can find anything!
Oh I m SOOO jealous! What a camping trip!! My 3 year old LOVES hiking and I am pretty sure he would love those huge trees. (I see your daughter, but didn’t at first because I was expecting her to be bigger next to the tree.) Then I realized where you were, and then I saw her. LOL I have been there once and it was absolutely beautiful! I even saw the tree with the road going through it. HUGE TREES! Glad you had a great time!
Thanks for the link love, and since the one from Budgets Are Sexy includes me as well, then I guess I should thank you twice! So thanks again! LOL
My daughter is so tiny next to that tree. LOL. I had a great time. Thanxs.
And you’re welcome. A good article(s) deserve good attention. Now keep writin’ it! 🙂
LOL … yep, now i see her. i didn’t at first.
I guess I should put a caption underneath the pic huh? Its like being a Oompa Loompa in Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. LOL.
