this was my camp site...
Jon, when I saw this heading I thought it might be your post. Sounds like a good camping time, and I wasn't surprised that ZackO was the first to reply. But I was a bit surprised that it was the Kennedy Meadows in the S. Sierras, Tulare County, near hwy 395. I'm up in Sonora near the Kennedy Meadows on Hwy 108 and always think of it. Higher elevation, more big trees, and suffering from past fires....but still some wonderful campgrounds. You should come up soon, but the east side of Sonora Pass is very steep and winding, with sign suggesting no trailers. From the Sonora side it is easier, but I bet you knew that ! Zack, farther distance for you, but you'd like it too ! David in Sonora and Fresno
