This is the second part of our trip to California. To see part one of our trip click here.
After traveling all around Northern California for a week my husband Chris had to head back to North Carolina to work. Ava and I were lucky enough to stay and continue our vacation. A week of camping at the Lair of the Golden Bear was just what my soul needed.
The Lair is a family camp in the heart of the Stanislaus National Forest in Northern California. It is owned by the Cal Alumni Association of UC Berkeley. It is unlike any vacation I have ever taken.
My Aunt and Uncle have been going to the Lair for 38 years. This was the first time Ava and I had ever been. We are definitely hooked. There is literally something for everyone.
I have so many fond memories of the week including listening to Ava learn how to play the ukulele, reading in a hammock, taking photographs for fun, swimming in the pool, boating on the lake (also bruising my tailbone cliff jumping), dancing at the “adult dance”, doing yoga, going to campfire, watching the kids play, drinking wine, admiring the stars of the Milky Way and spending time laughing and enjoying my family.
I hope that you enjoy these snippets of our time and that you can see why we loved the Lair so much! Make sure you scroll to the end to see the video of Ava playing the ukulele and singing. She had only been playing for a WEEK when this video was taken!
