Just a little late
« on: February 11, 2014, 08:13:05 PM »
I am sure I am not the only one with cabin fever and itching for the 2014 season to get underway. Since the board is sooooo slow with inactivity I thought I would post a report that I meant to post back in August.........never got around to it....maybe it had something to do with having four kids 4 yrs old and under and being busy doesnt even begin to describe my life these days =)  ......so here it goes!

Spent 5 days at East Fork (sites 112-114) the third week in August with my two oldest boys Caleb and Micah (4 and 3yrs old) and a few other family members. It was an awesome time...... perfect weather, fish in the creek and the lake, diminishing crowds, and killer pie. Here are some pics......enjoy!

Always do a roadside outbound pic .....somewhere near Big Pine


Our favorite site.....creekside


Our loaded pool 20 feet from tent......kids looped the trout in there


Caleb and Micah at Heart Lake


Mr. Micah......coolest lil hiker I've ever seen =)


Swedish Candle........perfect cooktop


This was heaven.......kids played in the inlet.....grown ups fished around the corner...........perfect!


The catch


The view I think about almost everyday


Sorry for the tardy report....hopefully it got your adrenalin  flowing for the upcoming season.......First trip for 2014 is planned for Mid May.........Kids ask about it weekly......WE CANNOT WAIT!!!!! Thanks to all your contributions......been lurking around and very lightly contributing for past 4 years........wealth of knowledge to learn on here......hope to cross paths with some of you one day up there....

That Swedish Candle looks so cool.  Thanks for the post and the pictures of your kids are great.  It's wonderful that they have a dad that is introducing them to the beauty and natural entertainment of the mountains. 
Let me wake laughing from a nap in the afternoon under the aspens in the fall.

Great report Damon!  Hey it’s never too late to post a report.  We appreciate the effort you made in your first trip report.  Making some great family memories to last a lifetime.  I do feel for you with four kids 4 and under….lol.   :camping:

Beautiful Pictures. Love those sites and know them well. Funny how a picture can take you right back. We are heading to Convict in March to finalize wedding details for my brother in law and my soon to be sister in law. I can't wait !

Corey, have you done most of the planning already? If not and you are interested I can probably find the info for the minister that performed our wedding in 2012. He had some good sugestions and was willing to go most anywhere. He lives in Bishop but performed our wedding at the top of Twin Lake Falls in Mammoth.

Outstanding report damer, looks like a couple of solid fishing buddies ya got there.
Life without music, laughter, and an Eastern Slope BBQ would be a mistake.
