Dave and I took advantage of a free day recently and drove to Alpine Lake to hike Inspiration Point.  When we got to the trail head it started to rain.  We almost talked ourselves out of hiking but finally decided we would not melt from a little rain.  It ended up drizzling the entire hike but the only thing it ruined was my hair!  We were glad we did it and so was Kari!

Because of the rain my camera stayed in my backpack most of the hike.

Kari seems to think we bring the string cheese for her!

We drove home a different route so we could go over the New Melones bridge.  We parked and walked across it.  Wow… another surreal sight to see this water level so low.

 

As you can see from the next picture this boat won't be able to go much further before having to turn around.

If you get a free day take a drive and check out some of the reservoirs.  It might make you think twice before taking that second shower.
