We enjoyed three days of boondocking in Ukiah, California, at the Ky-en Recreational Area on Mendocino Lake. It is a huge lake, over 1,800 acres and there are over 300 campsites around the lake. We were very happy to get our site for the price of only $11.00 a night. It would normally be $22.00 but we used our Senior Pass for a half-price savings. There were no hook-ups so we had to use our water sparingly, and ran our generator when needed. Our refrigerator did a good job running off of gas.
We sat around a fire every night and just enjoyed all the sounds of nature around us. I have never seen so many birds in one place in my life. I am still looking up birds in my books to identify them. We did our first California geocache while boondocking too. We were surprised to run into 7 wild turkeys while caching. I am adding a picture of three of them. ;-)
This was our first time boondocking for more than one day. We loved it and will be looking for more places like this on our journeys. More later from California.
